Triple A Transit: Affordable, Available and Accessible
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
149 W. Hastings
People who are homeless and destitute frequently have no way to use transit due to the cost. The Transit Working Group (TWG) is working to increase the financial and social accessibility of the Metro Vancouver public transit service for people who are homeless. Many major cities in Canada and Washington State have homeless transit programs or policies and we are working on developing one for Metro Vancouver.
Guest speakers from Calgary and Seattle will present on the range of programs in place in their cities that increase public transit access for people living in extreme poverty, including shelter residents. Speakers will share their stories of successful advocacy.
This event is a part of the Homelessness Action Week.
