Re: Seniors ask council for improved HandyDART services.
I would like to clarify a few points in the March 29 article regarding HandyDART service.
HandyDART is a transportation service for all persons who have a disability that is sufficiently severe that the person is unable to use conventional transit service without assistance.
HandyDART is also available on a temporary basis for people needing assistance recovering from surgeries that require physiotherapy, etc.
Registered HandyDART passengers are eligible for taxi saver coupons, which they can use when the bus is not available. These coupons can be purchased from the HandyDART driver.
For wheelchair passengers requiring special transportation outside of regular HandyDART hours, e.g: getting to the airport, please call and we will try our best to assist you.
HandyDART service is available Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Office hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thank you.
