WINSTED, Conn. (AP) — The Connecticut Public Transportation Commission has planned several public meetings this fall to gather input about the state of public transportation services.
The panel has scheduled four hearings around the state. The first is set for Oct. 10 at the Winsted Town Hall at 7:30 p.m. Others will be held in Windsor, Bridgeport and Mansfield.
Commission members are seeking testimony from the public, transportation providers, public officials and others concerning the operation of public transportation services, dial-a-ride programs, transportation for the disabled and other issues. They are trying to determine if the services are meeting the public's needs and whether improvements or new services are needed.
The commission plans to use the testimony in its annual recommendations to the governor.
