SEVT Remains Proactive On Coronavirus

Posted:

Southeast Vermont Transit (SEVT), operators of the Current and the MOOver, continues to follow state and federal guidance to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Guidance specifically for public transit has been given to SEVT by the Federal Transit Administration, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Additional guidance has been given by the Vermont Department of Health. 

SEVT began treating its buses last week with recommended cleaning and disinfectant products, and all staff including drivers have been trained in personal hygiene requirements. Buses are sprayed before and after each shift, and railings, dashboards, and door handles are wiped down daily with an EPA-suggested disinfectant.

All SEVT routes and services are maintaining their existing schedules except when a particular route is affected by a school closing.

SEVT KICKS OFF FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

SEVT KICKS OFF FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

November 30, 2018

 

WILMINGTON – Southeast Vermont Transit, parent company of The MOOver in Wilmington and The Current in Rockingham, kicked off its first fundraising campaign this week.

The campaign’s goal is to raise funds for both operations and capital match. Operations funds will be used to support existing services, and capital donations will go toward the local match required to buy new buses and other capital.

“We need to fundraise as our traditional sources of income become tighter and tighter” said Randy Schoonmaker, SEVT CEO.  “Operating costs increase, and it becomes more difficult each year for non-profits like SEVT to break even and to fund capital replacement.”

SEVT is doing mailings, applying for private grants, and networking to begin the

fundraising campaign. Donors may make one-time gifts of any amount or may pledge if they wish.

Donations are accepted via check or online at https://crtransit.charityproud.org/Donate .
