RELEASE DATE: October 9, 2018
WILMINGTON, VT Southeast Vermont Transit (SEVT) recently appointed two new members to its Board of Directors.
Joel Bluming of Jamaica joined the Board in May, and in September Scott Tucker also joined. They replaced Tom Marsh and Eithne Eldred who served on the Connecticut River Transit and Deerfield Valley Transit Association Boards respectively. They became SEVT Board members when the companies merged in 2015.
Bluming is a member of the Windham Regional Planning Commission’s Transportation Advisory Council and is a strong advocate for public transit. Tucker is the Wilmington Town Manager and a longtime member of the Rutland Police Department.
“We are fortunate to have such a well-rounded and well-qualified Board of Directors” said Randy Schoonmaker, SEVT CEO. “Scott and Joel join our existing six other Board members who represent our 35-town territory extremely well.”
The other Board members are Chip Stearns of Springfield; Wendy Harrison of Brattleboro; Travis Wendel of Wilmington; Marco Tallini of Dover; Jon Meeks of Wardsboro; and Matt Mann of Brattleboro. The Board meets in two locations via video conferencing usually on the third Thursday of the month. The two locations are 45 Mill Street in Wilmington and 706 Rockingham Road in Rockingham.
NEW BRATTLEBORO BUS SCHEDULE STARTS OCTOBER 15TH
RELEASE DATE: September 12, 2018
ROCKINGHAM, VT The Current announced today that the new Brattleboro bus schedules will become effective Monday, October 15th.
The new schedule reflects 12 months of planning, surveying, testing, and soliciting public input. It will add several hundred hours of new service, up from 8,800 to 9,100 hours. Most of the new service goes to the White Line which will start early in the morning instead of late morning. Also new is a new Blue Line loop to the Winston Prouty Center/Living Memorial Park/Brattleboro Music Center and White Line service to Cotton Mill.
The Red and White Lines will feature one-hour round trips, and the Red Line will now travel direct from West Brattleboro to Market32, eliminating a transfer at the Transportation Center that exists now. Transfer times have been reduced as much as possible between routes, and fares will remain at $1 per ride.
“We’re really excited about the new schedules” said Rebecca Gagnon, Current General Manager. “We thank everyone for their input on designing the new schedules and their support of our service. Hopefully we will serve our existing riders better and attract new ones.”
Schedules will be mailed to everyone in Brattleboro in late September. They will also be distributed on buses and in locations throughout town.
