Metro Vancouver’s transit authority, TransLink, just slashed services that tens of thousands of us rely on, including frontline and healthcare workers and ordinary British Columbians who take the bus or SkyTrain to work every day.[1]

It’s all because TransLink’s revenue has halved due to COVID-19. And without emergency funding, TransLink is warning that greater - and more drastic cuts - are imminent.[2]

But during the pandemic, over 75,000 people still depend on TransLink every day to get to essential work, food, and medicine.[3] If we lose this essential public transit, it could leave these tens of thousands of us without access to our basic needs — and worsen the current health crisis. 

A massive petition, calling on the BC and federal governments to step in with emergency funding could drive home the message that cuts to our public transit during a pandemic would be a disaster — and could convince the government to direct emergency funding to TransLink before it’s too late. Add your name now.
 

Prime Minister Trudeau and Premier Horgan:

Cuts to transit during COVID-19 are a public health risk and bad for all of us. Please provide emergency funding to TransLink to shore up services that British Columbians rely on.
