BATH — Mid-Coast Public Transportation (MCPT) announces the formation of a Transportation Advisory Work Group in Sagadahoc County, to include Brunswick and Harpswell.  The advisory work group will play a key role in the process of increasing access to public transportation in this region.  MCPT seeks active involvement from stakeholders in the private, public, and non-profit sectors to assist in guiding the expansion of public transportation.

“Our organization has provided public transportation in the Mid-Coast region for over 30 years, said Michael Hallundbaek, Director.  “Last year, we provided almost 300,000 trips through our transportation programs. But through community assessments, we know that there is a need for further development of public transportation, and we are responding to that need.”

The first Sagadahoc Transportation Advisory Work Group meeting will take place on Friday, January 19, 2018 from 9am-11:30 am, at Bath City Hall, located at 55 Front Street in Bath.

Additional work groups have developed in Waldo, Knox and Lincoln Counties.

“The Transportation Advisory Work Groups offer an important opportunity for stakeholders and passengers to join the effort by providing valuable input to the process,” said Steffanie Pyle, MCPT Community Engagement Facilitator.
