MONTPELIER, Vermont — The Vermont Transportation Board is holding eight hearings at college campuses across the state to hear from young adults about how decisions about transportation affect their choices about where to live and work.
The board identified various transportation-related issues believed to be important to young adults who are just beginning their careers.
Board chairman Nick Marro says studies indicate cars are often not as important to young adults as to others. One goal of the hearings is to see what Vermont can do to remain attractive to young adults.
The first hearing will be held Oct. 14 at Norwich University in Northfield.
The Transportation Board adjudicates transportation-related disputes in Vermont and regulates infrastructure. Each fall, the board gauges public opinion on transportation topics.
