No to cutting transit
Our first action is in response to the announcement that Translink will be severely cutting transit service in Metro Vancouver. We are calling on the federal government to provide emergency funding to maintain essential transit service for essential workers as well as for members of the community who rely on transit service to meet their daily needs.
TransLink to significantly cut service if it doesn’t get sign of government help
Let's help vulnerable members of the community
Funding transit through fares and a gas tax that diminishes with increased ridership has created a fragile system that can not withstand a responsive change like the one we are experiencing during COVID-19. The most vulnerable members of our community are the ones to be left stranded by these cuts. The employees we are heralding as heroes will be left on the side of the road.
We are calling on the federal government to recognize transit as an essential service and to fund it like an essential service. You can help by completing the form letter (link to that page) and telling your representatives in government why transit matters to you.

current system is inequitable
We recognize that our current system is inequitable and that work has to be done to ensure it meets the needs of all members of our communities. Please stay tuned for future actions to ensure transit is available to all of us now and in the future.
