Southeast Vermont Transit (SEVT aka the MOOver) will hold the second and final set of public meetings about its new microtransit service on January 18th.
The first of two meetings that day begins at 2:00 pm and a second will begin at 6:00 pm, both in the Windsor Welcome Center. The purposes of the meetings are to identify the final operating conditions of the new microtransit service, as well as to demonstrate the three ways to book a ride. Nicknamed the MicroMOO, the new service will operate Monday-Friday 6:00 am-6:00 pm. It is free of charge and is open to anyone who needs a ride within the Windsor town limits. Service begins at 6:00 am Monday, January 23rd.
Microtransit is an Uber-like system of real-time hailed, dynamically routed, public transit service open to all members of the public with service provided by a small bus or van. Riders will request a ride via an app, online, or by calling SEVT. Rides will be delivered in a lift-equipped van within the Town of Windsor boundaries.
Windsor is one of only five Vermont towns that has been funded for this two-year pilot program. Other towns include Barre, Manchester, Middlebury, and Morrisville.
