5. Public Transport On The Agenda: Tonight SEAT (Southern Area Transit District) meets at 4:00 p.m. at SEAT Administration Facility (Route 12, Preston). Yesterday, the Connecticut Public Transportation Commission held a public hearing in New London at the New London City Hall. It was the last of four hearings that the Commission held statewide this fall to gather testimony from the public, transportation providers, public officials and other entities concerning the operation of public transportation services, dial-a-ride and ADA transportation and other issues.
The idea was to find out how existing services are meeting public needs and what improvements or new services are needed to address unmet travel requirements. Local and regional issues of particular interest included rider input on the expanded Shore Line East service, downtown New London intermodal connections, boating access at Amtrak’s moveable bridges, SEAT bus operations under State management, interregional bus connections from Southeastern Connecticut, and other topics of interest to the public.
The Commission will use the testimony received at this public hearing as well as from other hearings conducted across the state in preparing recommendations for its annual report to the Governor, the Commissioner of Transportation and the Transportation Committee of the General Assembly.
