Regional VTrans Forums

Vermont is updating its state-wide Public Transit Plan. Do you ride the bus? Carpool? Uber? We want your input. VTrans will be holding regional forums throughout the state in October and November. The purpose of the regional forums is to gather input on existing public transportation services, service gaps and challenges, and potential solutions from stakeholders and transit riders.

Attached is the flyer for the Public Transit Policy Plan (PTPP) that details the site locations for the forums. PTPP Regional Forum Flyer_Final[7171]

The transportation committee needs to discuss in detail our goals and input for these meetings.
