Third annual Burlington Transit Users' Forum,
April 1

Burlington’s third annual Transit Users’ Forum will let participants have their say in the future of the city’s bus system. The Forum takes place Saturday, April 1, starting at 10 a.m. in the Burlington Central Library, 2331 New Street. BFAST, Burlington For Accessible Sustainable Transit, is organizing the event.

A real-time survey of Forum participants will help guide a City of Burlington-sponsored transit study. According to BFAST, “The study was part of the 2017 city budget, which devoted no new money to transit, but set up the study to guide what will hopefully be a new commitment to transit.”

City staff will make a presentation to the forum about the upcoming integrated mobility plan that will help guide the direction of the system. Using interactive technology, staff will conduct an instant poll of transit users to help shape the conclusions of the study, which Burlington’s city council mandated in December.

Staff from Burlington Transit are also participating in the event. For the second year, the Forum will present an annual report card to Burlington Transit on how well it responded to the suggestions of participants at last year’s Forum.

Due to the interest in last year’s Forum, the meeting will extend for another 30 minutes, to 12:30. Doors open at 9:30 for registration and a free continental breakfast.

Getting there by public transit:

  • Burlington Transit buses operating along the 4 Central and 10 New / Maple routes stop at or near the library.
