Improve Transportation services for seniors Terrace B.C.
In 2016 stats Canada has shown that people over the age of 55 make up 27.5% of the total population in Terrace. It is predicted that this number will continue to increase.....and we need to address the transportation gaps in our community.
With the limited hours, and the unavailability to pick people up close to their homes for same day bookings, seniors in our community are missing medical appointments, social outings, and family gatherings.
We in the Seniors Programs at Volunteer Terrace have heard your stories, and it's time to see results!
Please sign this petition if you feel our community is in need of a better handyDART system, and help make our community more accessible to seniors!
Update **We also have heard that the handyDart will not go to Kitsumkalum. I heard a sad story of an elderly man today, who lives off reserve, and can't get on reserve to visit his family.
