Changes to the Annual Bus Pass Program

You may have now heard that the BC government has announced the end of the annual bus pass program for those who collect the Persons with Disabilities benefit.  Kardel encourages you to learn more about this impending change and the impact it will have on the lives of those with disabilities.  Below you will find more information.  You may consider signing the petition that has been created by Inclusion BC to bring back the annual bus pass program and raise the rate of PWD.  Here are the major points of the petition: •             Bring back the $45 per year bus pass for people with disabilities. •             Eliminate the new $52/month bus pass fee. •             Let everyone receiving PWD benefits keep the $77/month increase. •             Raise the PWD benefit rate to $1200 per month by October 1, 2016 to reflect the cost of living.
