ACTR seeking feedback from riders, community
ACTR is seeking feedback from riders and other community members on proposed schedule changes for its in-county services. There will be a public meeting on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 5:30pm at the Community Transportation Center located at 297 Creek Road, Middlebury. If transportation is needed to attend the meeting, rides can be provided. Please call ACTR at least 48 hours in advance at 388-2287 to arrange.
Proposed changes were cited by riders and supported by Efficiency Studies that looked at under-performing areas and unmet community needs. Proposed schedule changes include increasing frequency of mid-day service between Middlebury and Vergennes, increasing frequency of service around the Middlebury College campus, and slightly shortening evening service within Middlebury.
“I’m pleased to be diminishing some of the negative effects that our hub relocation has had on in-county services,” said Jim Moulton, Executive Director of ACTR. “These changes will allow us to make service easier to use both between Middlebury and Vergennes and within Middlebury.”
Pending input from the public hearing, the changes are planned to launch in late August and will be supported by new signage at all bus stops, new schedule brochures, as well as updates to www.actr-vt.org and Google Transit. Riders may also call for more information, 388-ACTR(2287). ACTR’s mission is to enhance the economic, social and environmental health of the region by providing public transportation services that are safe, reliable, accessible and affordable for everyone.
