HandyDART Advisory Committee

Woman getting off HandyDART with support from operatorThe HandyDART Advisory Committee (HDAC) was formed as part of a commitment to establish additional ways for HandyDART customers to provide input on the service. The HandyDART Advisory Committee allows TransLink to hear directly from customers and stakeholders and ensure that this service meets their needs, particularly as we deliver an ambitious workplan that includes a number of significant policy changes from recommendations arising out of the 2017 Custom Transit Service Delivery Review.

The purpose of the HandyDART Advisory Committee is to provide advice and guidance on HandyDART plans, programs and other initiatives and advise TransLink on matters to improve HandyDART service for customers. It is composed of individuals who are HandyDART customers or have direct experience working with them, and who take a collaborative approach to improving the service.
