Amalgamated Transit Union

Local 1724

ATU Local 1724 represents the workers in the Greater Vancouver regional area with the paratransit service known as HandyDART. We are the operators, office workers, mechanics and road supervisors that serve the elderly and those with special needs. This ever so needed public transit service has a value to the public that allows people to get out and be a part of their community, which otherwise may be extremely difficult or impossible to achieve on their own. The provision of professionally trained drivers and staff are key components to having a sucessful, reliable paratransit system that delivers a high standard of operation throughout the Greater Vancouver. This service is publically funded by Translink.
