BARRE, Vt. (AP) — Officials say Green Mountain Transit is hoping to expand service through its “NextGen Transit Plan” so that it is financially and environmentally sustainable while increasing ridership throughout its Vermont network.
Green Mountain Transit Director of Operations Jon Moore says they want to make using the service as easy as possible.
The Times Argus reports a committee has developed and is now evaluating three scenarios for altering routes, including those serving the Barre-Montpelier area.
Moore says all three scenarios focus on improving current services because officials didn’t find areas that could support geographic expansion.
