HRA News: Get Out and Vote for More HandyDART! Tomorrow is Election Day

Tomorrow, Tuesday May 9, is Election Day. And the choices are clear if you want better HandyDART service. Your candidate’s campaign office can provide a ride to the polling place – just give them a call!

Bet reminded NDP Leader John Horgan of the NDP’s commitment to increase HandyDART service 5% per year for 4 years

This is what the BC NDP says about HandyDART in their platform:

“HandyDART service hours were frozen by Christy Clark and the BC Liberals in 2009, and as a result, trip denials went up over 600 per cent. Service quality has also deteriorated, with riders routinely forced to wait for hours.
 
›› We will work with TransLink and BC Transit to find long and lasting solutions to improve HandyDART service, reduce trip denials, and ensure that seniors and people with disabilities get the rides they need.”
John Horgan and the NDP have also committed to providing funding to increase HandyDART service hours by 5% per year for the next four years. The Green Party’s platform does not mention HandyDART, but does pledge more support for public transit.

Together, we can make a difference!

Vote – and urge your friends and family to do the same

Elections are decided as much by the people who don’t vote as those who do. The wealthy always vote, and staying at home lets them pick the government.

You can also ask the candidate you plan to vote for for a ride to the voting place. If they have dropped off a leaflet or other printed material, their phone number will be on it. NDP candidates’ contact information is available at www.bcndp.ca/team

  1. Handy dart sent me a nasty letter threateninng to suspend my service, because I have cancelled my trip a few times with one hour notice. I get up at 6 and I call right away when I am sick even thomy ride is at 7. They claimed I was a no show when I was sitting on my walker the whole time at the same side walk they left me at in front of the same address. I heard a bus speeding past me and it was the handy dat. She never looked to see me on the side walk. It was not a no show. I was abandoned with no way home. They always lie and tell me they listened to the recording and it is my fault. hey lie. Another time a driver let me although I kept telling her it was suppose to be the 7-11 bldg. The terrain was rocky and there was a hill. I have a balance disorder. I fell 3 times. And again abandoned with no way home. Yet they threaten to cancel my service because I only gave them an hours notice that I was sick.
