CBC – A group of disabled people has complained to the Human Rights Commission about Edmonton’s subsidies for public transit.
Right now, people on the provincial Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped program who are capable of using public transit pay $32 for a monthly pass. But those who require the city-run Disabled Adult Transit (DATS) because of their disability pay $81.50.
“I think it’s very unfair because some of us have to use DATS, we have no choice,” said Peggy Millenaar, who has multiple sclerosis.
