What will they say about our transportation decisions in ten or twenty years? With three Vermont bicyclist deaths this year, many Williston children not being able to safely walk or ride to school, and bus routes only beginning to connect Williston residents with jobs and surrounding communities, we can either bet on more cars, more carbon, more traffic, more pollution, and more danger to bicyclists and pedestrians, or get behind alternative transportation in a big way.
Join experts on alternative transportation, from buses to electric vehicles to bike paths to ride sharing, for a roundtable discussion of the what, why, how, and how much of alternative transportation in Williston. Learn about changes to bus service; new electric cars with longer range; and what it takes to get bike and pedestrian paths where we need them most. This free event in Sustainable Williston’s Sustainable Energy series takes place at the Dorothy Alling Library Monday evening, August 24th, at 7:00 to 8:30 pm [THIS IS A CORRECTION: WE ERRONEOUSLY HAD PREVIOUSLY LISTED THE EVENT AS BEING FROM 6:30 to 8:00]. Come to ask questions and offer ideas or to learn from representatives of organizations tentatively to include Go! Vermont, CCTA, Drive Electric Vermont, Local Motion, and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission. We’ll have refreshments available.
