Survey collecting input on seniors transportation

Save Our Northern Seniorss looking for more HandyDart services in Fort St John, along with a reliable handicapped taxi for the city and nearby rural communities

A new survey has launched to understand how the current transportation system in British Columbia is working for seniors 55 and older, and what improvements are needed.

The Seniors’ Transportation Survey is a joint effort of United Way British Columbia and Better Environmentally Sound Transportation. 

The two groups say the results from the survey will be used to identify the need for new and improved transportation services throughout the province, and move forward conversations for improvements with municipal, regional, and provincial governments, as well as transportation service providers.

In Fort St. John, the Save Our Northern Seniors group is encouraging residents to complete the survey, noting it continues to ask for more HandyDART services as well as a reliable handicapped taxi for the city. SONS has also been advocating for more HandyDart times on weekends and evenings.

The survey takes about 10 minutes, and can be completed online by clicking here.

The deadline to complete the survey is Thursday, Dec. 16, at 4 p.m.
