Upcoming MaineDOT Transportation Planning Meetings
The Maine Department of Transportation is holding a series of public meetings to seek public comment regarding transportation issues, including public transportation.
Input from attendees will help MaineDOT understand the needs of the public and formulate its Long-Range Needs Assessment, focusing on the next 10 years and projecting out to 20 years. Public comment is an essential part of this planning process. Western Maine Transportation Services plans to attend all 8 sessions affecting our service area and we are inviting you to join us your input is needed.
We look forward to seeing you at one or more of these meetings. For dates and times please go to MaineDOT Talk Transportation
