HUB and the BC Cycling Coalition have joined the GetOnBoard BC coalition. GetOnBoard BC is a non-partisan coalition of residents, students, workers, businesses, academics and other groups which works to improve public transit in Metro Vancouver.
On joining the coalition, HUB released a statement: “HUB believes an efficient and reliable transit system is key to the economic, personal and community health of our region. Not only does it provide an accessible and sustainable form of mobility, it plays an important part of supporting cycling trips, reducing the need to own a car, and allowing multi-modal trips which combine cycling and transit. HUB supports GetOnBoard BC and more sustainable transportation investments in the region.”
Campaign Director Lee Haber was pleased to see the GetOnBoard BC coalition grow. “Transit and cycling go together, so it makes sense that cycling and transit organizations work together to bring more sustainable transportation. It’s great to have HUB and the BCCC part of our coalition” said Mr. Haber.
