Important Addison County transportation meeting coming up

"All interested Riptonites are invited to this meeting. We want ACTR to provide commuter bus service to Ripton. We may need to start with Thursday and Friday only service.

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), in conjunction with Addison County Transit Resources and consultation provided by Milligan & Company, LLC, will be holding a public meeting on the Vermont five-year Short-Range Public Transportation Plans (SRPTP). The SRPTP is a requirement of the Vermont Legislature in order for public transportation providers to access state and federal funding. The SRPTP include: transit service analysis; operations and capital budgeting; service coordination; strategic planning; and needs/issues important to the communities they serve.

The purpose of the meeting is to solicit comment on the Addison County Transit Resource's existing services, operations and planning. The meeting will be held on Monday, July 21, 2008, 5:15 pm at Ilsley Public Library, Public Meeting Room, 75 Main Street, Middlebury, VT.

For more information on the public meeting, as well as other information on the SRPTP, please visit For questions, contact Krista Chadwick at (802) 828-5750 or, or Costa Pappis at (802) 828-5790 or If you are in need of transportation to and/or from the public meeting, please contact Addison County Transit Resources at (802) 388-1946 for assistance."
