Volunteers Sought for Citizens Transit Committee

First Selectman Gordon Joseloff today issued an invitation for interested Westporters to serve on a new Citizens Transit Committee.

“The new committee will examine transit operations in Westport involving the commuter shuttle and after school buses and offer recommendations on how these operations might be more efficient and serve our community better,” Joseloff said.

He said the recent Board of Finance action in reducing and then partially restoring the requested funds to operate the district in 2012-13 made clear the need to find ways to operate more efficiently.

“This could involve changes in fees, increased marketing, modified routes and times and other possible actions that will make the transit operations more efficient,” Joseloff said.

At the same time, he urged the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) to restore the $60,000 cut in the Transit District budget enacted by the Board of Finance.

“Setting a six-month deadline to show improvements is too short a time to achieve such results and creates unnecessary uncertainties in the lives of commuters who rely on the shuttles,” Joseloff said.

He said those with experience in transit operations, management consultant work, or similar qualifications would be especially welcomed.

Interested applicants should submit a resume to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or via mail to Selectman’s Office, 110 Myrtle Ave., Westport, CT 06880. Deadline for applications is May 1.
