Seniors, like everyone else, value their independence. A key part of living a fulfilling, independent life as we age is access to transportation. For those who don’t drive, including many Oshawa seniors, public transit is a vital connection to friends, family, and activities.
We are going to make it easier for seniors to travel on Durham Region Transit by advocating for a Seniors’ Stop Request Program. This will allow seniors to ask the bus driver to stop in between stops, helping them get to their destination easier and safer.
