Equal treatment needed for disabled
It has come to my attention that Island Transit’s paratransit does not serve all Island County disabled equally. My husband in Rolling Hills gets door-to-door service six days a week; but those who don’t live “near Highway 20” must ride their local bus and transfer at the station in Oak Harbor to whatever route goes to their destination, a troublesome move especially in bad weather.
Then they must repeat the process to get home. If their local bus doesn’t run on Saturday, then they have service only five days a week. It is patently unfair that having six-day service depends upon where you live, when so many community activities take place on Saturdays.
