WE NEED A COMPLETE AND PUBLIC AUDIT OF TRANSLINK AND HandyDART!
Translink was intended to get people out of their cars and into public transit, Not an exact quote see Auditor General's 1941 audit of Translink.
Since then the Translink Board has been taken out of the public domain and placed into the private one. In 1941 the Translink Board was comprised of Mayors and other named members. Under premiership of Campbell they moved to a advisory group with no powers. Since Mayors are elected officials, public went down the tube. Government appointed a board made up of professionals. So Translink moved into the private domain.
With elections in 2013 it is time NOW to start a "Right the wrongs campaign." Let's start with Translink - restore the Translink Board to Mayors and remove "contracted service" from any companies that are contracted like HandyDART placing them as companies like all other companies in Translink. It would improve for both users and companies.
