I received a flier about a virtual town hall for HandyDART services last week. I wanted to pass on this information as I know that HandyDART service is a critical part of our transportation network in Langley City.

Are you concerned about Translink’s increasing use of taxis to perform HandyDART trips? Are you worried about the service’s lack of public accountability?
