Parking area removed

This morning I drove my wife, who is blind, to the Surrey Central Station which is our normal practise five days per week, only to find that the five minute kiss and ride parking area is now designated as a bus stop.

This now means that anybody assisting blind or physically handicapped persons (and there are many who use this station) must now either park illegally or pay for parking and negotiate an extra distance to put a person on the train.

I would like to know why (as I was informed by the traffic department at City Hall) TransLink did not take into consideration this increasingly large section of the population and why they can just take over parking at their will?
