Dear Transit Stakeholder,

The Maine Department of Transportation is holding a series of forums regarding general public transit -services.  A recent statewide analysis of transit services, compiled as part of the Maine Strategic Transit Plan 2025, shows that there are unmet transit needs in a number of communities. We are holding these forums in those communities that appear to have the largest unmet needs.  We are seeking ideas from the public on how to improve services for: 

·         Low income individuals

·         The elderly

·         Individuals with disabilities

·         Members of the general public 

The results of these forums will be important for advising future investments for general public transit services and for the public participation process established by MaineDOT in its efforts to meet both state and federal transportationplanning and funding requirements for transit services (Ref 23 MRSA 4209 and Federal Transit Administration's  Locally Coordinated Transit Plan requirements).
