STAR helps seniors stay healthy and age in place by providing services and programs that make transportation available, accessible, predictable, convenient and affordable.
We Are Specialists In Sustainable Transportation
STAR is a program of Better Environmentally Sound Transportation (BEST), a non-profit organization promoting sustainable transportation since 1991.
Since 2010 we have been working with senior serving agencies to advance, innovate and improve transportation for seniors. Currently, we are coordinating Seniors on the Move, a three year project funded by New Horizons where we will look to improve and innovate on transportation options for seniors in Metro Vancouver in order to fight social isolation.
Our supporters have included the United Way of the Lower Mainland and the Vancouver Foundation, among others.
We provide a resource hub to create change through research, policy, and advocacy.
We support seniors-serving agencies with transportation solutions for their clients.
STAR helps communities lead the way in developing transportation solutions grounded in community well-being, health, sustainability and inclusivity.
