Sign the Ridesharing Now for BC Petition Today!
Vancouver remains one of the largest cities in North America without access to ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft. As a member of the Ridesharing Now for BC coalition, the BC Epilepsy Society understands the need for Vancouver to provide accessible transportation options to its residents, especially for residents who face barriers to transportation, such as people living with epilepsy, many of whom do not have drivers licenses due to their condition.
There are over 40,000 people living with epilepsy in BC with over 15,000 people living with epilepsy in the Lower Mainland alone. Many of these people have limited transportation options, which can continue to negatively impact their quality of life. Bringing ridesharing to the province will not only make our roads safer and result in a stronger economy and a cleaner environment but will also give people living with epilepsy a more reliable and affordable method of transport, which can greatly increase their quality of life.
The BC Epilepsy Society hopes that decision makers will choose to bring ridesharing to the province but we can’t do it alone. Help bring ridesharing to the province by filling out this petition and be a voice for people living with epilepsy in BC!
