Some Handydart riders, fed-up with what they say is substandard service, are hoping next year’s referendum on transit funding will bring improvements.

Several dozen people who rely on the door-to-door service gathered in New Westminster this weekend.

Frustrated by cancelled trips and Handydart’s growing reliance on taxis to provide rides, they plan to campaign for the “yes” side in the referendum.

They will be urging local politicians to direct more money towards transit.

A date for the referendum hasn’t been set, but it’s expected to take place sometime next spring.
