Regardless which side wins in the .05 per cent congestion improvement tax vote, the HandyDart service needs discussing.

Saturday, April 18 at 11 a.m., the HandyDart Riders Alliance, along with MLAs and city councillors will be at the Ridge Meadows Seniors Activity Centre discussing the future of the service.

According to the alliance, HandyDart service hours have been frozen since 2009.

Beth McKellar, HandyDart Riders’ Alliance spokesperson, said if the yes side wins, there will be a 30-per-cent increase in HandyDart service.

“But what happens to HandyDART if the No side wins?”

HandyDart is a door-to-door transit service for people with disabilities and older seniors.
