WESTPORT, Conn. — Westport commuters are encouraged to attend a public meeting Wednesday night regarding a study on how to bus service in town can be improved.
The meeting is being hosted by the Westport Transit District and the South Western Regional Planning Agency in the Town Hall auditorium at 7:30 p.m. “The study will assess current operations and develop an updated recommended service and governance plan for bus services, including fixed route, ADA, services for the elderly, services to the two Westport rail stations, off-site parking, and after school shuttle activities,” Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff said in a statement. The ultimate goal of the study is to update existing service to better serve the travel needs of residents.
During the meeting, the study will be introduced to the public. Input on current and desired bus routes, as well as bus scheduling, will be gathered from residents.
“This is an opportunity for the public to obtain information about the study and reshape the routes and schedule of the bus service, as appropriate, early in the process,” said Joseloff. The meeting will include a brief presentation at 8 p.m. There will also be small group discussions and a question-and-answer period. Representatives from SWRPA, the Westport Transit District and the study team, led by the Southport-based consultant group AECOM, will be on hand to answer questions.
Town Hall is located at 110 Myrtle Ave.
