We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses have been switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service.

Access Transit Overview

The Access Transit program was established to ensure that accessible transit is integrated into all our transit plans, projects and programs. The Access Transit team works closely with a formal Users' Advisory Committee to implement the recommendations of the Access Transit Strategy.


The Access Transit Team

The TransLink team that manages implementation of the Access Transit Strategy consists of:

  • Access Transit Coordination – manages the Access Transit Strategy, policies, training, and administers the Users' Advisory Committee.
  • Access Transit Customer Care – main point of contact for client services such as HandyDART and HandyCard registration, and administering the TaxiSaver program.
  • Transit Services – administers the HandyDART service contract and monitors performance.
  • First Transit – the service provider that books, schedules, and provides HandyDART trips.

The Access Transit team also works with the Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure and BC Transit to help coordinate accessible transportation across the province.
