Re: Concern over handyDART proposal (Your View, May 4)
In response to the letter published on May 4, I’d like to provide some clarity on a couple of the items addressed by Mr. Faulks:
1) The proposed new handyDART facility does not preclude the future placement of light rail.
The 2011 Victoria Region Transit Future Plan (bctransit.com/victoria/transit-future) identified light rail to run alongside the Trans-Canada Highway, maintaining the Galloping Goose Trail alignment.
2) The operational strategy for handyDART is to have one centrally-located facility that will provide door-to-door shared transit service for people with permanent or temporary disabilities in the Greater Victoria area (bctransit.com/victoria/handydart-facility).
