TaxiSavers: COSCO & BCCPD Applaud TransLink & the Community

The Council of Senior Citizens Organizations (COSCO) and the BC Coalition of People with Disabilities (BCCPD) applauds the TransLink Board for reversing its plan to eliminate the TaxiSaver Program. We would also like to congratulate the organizations and individuals who worked hard to show TransLink why Taxisavers are so important to the dignity and independence of seniors and people with disabilities.
By truly listening to the voices of people who use TaxiSavers and acting on what it heard the Board has demonstrated that it values community consultation. We are encouraged that going forward TransLink will continue to engage in true community consultation when it develops plans that impact people with disabilities and seniors.
