An Ask Me Anything on Transit
Bring questions and get answers!
Transit connects over 1.6 million people in BC and even during this time it continues to support more than 75,000 people who rely on transit to maintain COVID-19 essential services. But the future of public transit is uncertain, since April 22nd transit cuts have reduced service on buses and skytrains by 20-40%. Students, commuters, people with disabilities, families and seniors depend on transit for their daily mobility, but the service they depend on is at risk.
You’ve seen the headlines, this is your chance to get answers to your questions. Share your questions with other attendees and get answers from our panel of Transit and mobility experts.
- How threatened, really, is our transit system? What does running out of money look like for transit riders next week or a year from now?
- What about bus drivers and their jobs? Are they safe? How’s morale?
- Isn’t the federal government just going to swoop in and save it? Why wouldn’t they?
- What can I do to help?
Bring your lunch, show up on Zoom to get your questions answered on April 30th at 12:00pm.
