     WILMINGTON:  Southeast Vermont Transit (aka The MOOver) has been awarded state and federal funding for the foreseeable future from the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) for the new Brattleboro Microtransit program called the MicroMOO2.

            Microtransit started in Brattleboro on April 15th with enough funding to operate through February 2025. The service, which runs weekdays 5:30 pm-11:30 pm, was started with a $100,000 grant from the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation (BDCC) and a $24,000 grant from the Town of Brattleboro Human Services Fund.

            The VTrans grant for the initial period of February-June 30, 2025, is $40,000 in federal funding and $10,000 in state funding for a total of $50,000. The funding will expand after June 30, 2025 to full year funding for three years as a pilot program.

            “We are so grateful to VTrans for backfilling this year’s program, and for providing sustainable funding after that,” said Randy Schoonmaker, SEVT CEO. “These funds are very competitive around the state, and VTrans has funded both of our microtransit pilot requests.” The MOOver has operated a weekday daytime microtransit program in Windsor since January 23, 2023.

            The MicroMOO2 service is free and reservations are required. They can be made one of three ways: online @; calling 888-869-6287 or 802-460-7433 (option 6) 7:45 am-5:00 pm Monday-Friday; or via the QRyde app available for download at the Apple Store and Google Play Store.
