  • Open Letter to Translink Board Chair Dale Parker and CEO Thomas Prendergast – New Westminster Environmental Partners
    is also not a viable alternative the HandyDart system is already overtaxed and requires advanced booking It simply doesn t offer the mobility for our seniors the local bus could particularly when a stop could be as close as just outside their door Compared to the local bus HandyDart simply isn t scalable or economically feasible as a large scale solution This is why we d like to encourage you as one of your first acts in your new roles to examine the possibility of low floor mini buses for Community Shuttle routes such as ours Low floor buses in sizes equivalent to the Community Shuttles 15 25 feet can be found in cities around the world They offer the best compromise between small community buses and the accessibility of low floor buses Besides the obvious benefits for our valued seniors there are many other economic and sustainability reasons to move away from the current fleet of Community Shuttles Current Community Shuttle vehicles use a lift to offer accessible service however lifts have a number of disadvantages The most significant is time to load then unload a wheelchair can cost up to ten minutes of running time This additional time must be accounted for when planning schedules meaning additional operating costs for taxpayers While ramps on low floors take less than two minutes to load and can unload in under a minute with no assistance from the driver Lifts also add a significant amount of weight and take away from passenger carrying capacity This added weight was a large problem with the Flyer D40 series of buses the frame must be stronger and it costs more fuel to carry the additional load bad for taxpayers and the environment The lifts on Community Shuttle vehicles require operators to exit the vehicle adding risk of injury through slipping or other environmental challenges This again is bad for taxpayers since WCB claims add significant costs to operating expenses The most serious problem with lifts is if they malfunction while deployed the entire vehicle is stranded Ramps can easily be folded back in and the bus may carry on If a lift malfunctions traffic can be blocked passengers are inconveniences and in the worst case a passenger could be stranded on the bus From a sustainability angle these community shuttle vehicles will produce far more of an environmental impact over their lifetime than sturdier transit vehicles Translink calculates these community shuttle vehicles will have a life span of 7 8 years compared to a standard transit bus with lifetimes of 20 30 years This means for every standard transit vehicle lifetime three community shuttles will have come and gone That s two additional buses to be manufactured along with all associated greenhouse gases and materials It s also a significant increase in the amount of buses heading to scrap At a time when the provincial government is focused on lower environmental impacts and moving towards carbon neutrality to have such disposable buses in the
