PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Regional Transit Authority is releasing the results of a study down on the need employment-based transportation.
The survey, done in conjunction with transportation planning consultant McMahon Associates, looked at employment issues related to the lack of public transportation after the buses stop running at 6 p.m. in Berkshire County.
It included identifying where the employment centers are, what the various shifts are, and how to connect these employees to their jobs oncepublic transportation ends.
Berkshire County residents are invited to attend a public meeting to hear the aspects of the study and to provide feedback on this conceptual idea. These public meetings will be held in North, Central, and South Berkshire located on a bus route during public transportation hours.
The meetings are as follows:
Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 10 to noon at The Green, 87 Main St., North Adams
Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Intermodal Center, 2nd floor boardroom, 1 Columbus Ave., Pittsfield
Thursday, Nov. 9, from 10 to noon at the Great Barrington Fire Station, 37 State Road
