Commuter bus service for Ripton

Addison County Transit Resources has a plan to institute commuter bus service for Ripton for Thursdays and Fridays.

It will involve ending Sunday service.

There will be a hearing on Tuesday, September 30, 2008, from 5:30 to 6:30 pm at Middlebury Congregational Church’s meeting room. Entrance on Seymour Street. It will be important to get as many Riptonites as possible to attend.

Then the schedule could change as early as November 1.

Tentatively, buses would arrive in Middlebury at 8 am and 9 am, and leave Middlebury at 4:45, and 5:45. These times can be discussed at the hearing. There will also be midday runs.

Fares of $1 would probably be charged.

If you can't make the meeting, you may also submit comments in writing to ACTR, 282 Boardman Street, P.O. Box 532, Middlebury, VT 05753 or via email: info@actr-vt.org.

For more information or specific transportation needs for the hearing, call 388-1946 or visit www.actr-vt.org.

Please spread the word! I'll see you on the 30th.
