BC Transit needs improvements in the City of Vernon to get more residents riding the buses. the bus stops do not have sidewalks to them, they are not accessible for the blind as there is no tactile differences to indicate the bus stop. most of the bus stops are on grass easements not accessible for dog guides or mobility devices. in the winter months the bus tops are not shoveled. most of the bus stops are opposite the sidewalks as on many streets there are only sidewalks on one side of the streets. it is very confusing when a person has to walk one block on one side of the street and then has to cross the street to find a sidewalk on the other side of the street to continue travelling in the same direction. Public transportation is difficult to access and handydart now only goes where BC Transit buses travel making some locations unaccessible by either transit nor handy dart. Handy dart should not need to be booked one week in advance, in other cities much larger than Vernon it is only 24 to 48 hours in advance booking for a handy dart ride. Why can this not be improved in Vernon?
