BFAST Transit Users' Forum, May 4 2024
BFAST’s 2024 Transit Users’ Forum on May 4 reclaims its usual Spring date this year with a new focus: moving to the next stage in transit expansion. Transit is a big part of the solution to reducing pollution, ending gridlock and making our city more liveable. And our current Mayor and City Council, first elected in 2018, have stepped up to the plate by re-establishing a viable and reliable transit service.

But transit can do so much more. And that’s what we’ll be discussing at this year’s Forum: how to enlist our elected representatives in our efforts to greatly expand public transit, the best single initiative we can undertake to reduce pollution and combat climate change.

Each year’s Forum also offers the opportunity for transit riders to pose questions directly to Burlington Transit Director Catherine Baldelli, and this year will be no different, with half of the agenda devoted to a Q&A session.

Please check this page for agenda updates. If you can’t attend the Forum or don’t wish to pose a question in person, you can also fill out the form on this page and we’ll make sure your issue is brought forward.
