Transportation Board Seeks Comments From Young Adults

Date: Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Time: 6:30 pm

What can Vermont do transportation-wise to remain attractive to young adults as a place to work and raise a family?

The Vermont Transporation Board will have an open meeting to gather public comment from young adults (Ages 18-34) about transportation related decisions that factor into the choices they make when deciding where to live and work.

Topics of discussion: Is it true that many young adults are choosing not to purchase cars; How much of that decision is based on environmental concerns; What transportation options are considered when choosing a place to live and work; How important are motor-vehicle alternatives; What future transportation projects are important to young adults; What urban transportation solutions can be adapted to rural areas; What technologies are important to the mobility of young adults; How can we reduce the rate of distracted amd impaired driving among youth?
People who cannot attend a hearing can submit written comment by visiting the Board's website at www.tboard.vermont.gov.
