The FRCOG, the Town of Greenfield, and the GBA will take over the parking space located on Main Street at the corner of Chapman Street in front of the Brass Buckle Restaurant on Friday, September 19th from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. These groups will convert the parking space into a public park for the day and promote local sustainable projects and alternative transportation activities that are occurring in Franklin County.
The FRCOG has created a new video with instructions on how to load your bike on the bus. Check it out here.
A summary of the public input received at the Community Conversations co-hosted by the FRTA and FRCOG is now available here. This input will be used to create various service scenarios, which will be evaluated by the consultants, URS, as they draft the Regional Transit Plan for the Comprehensive Service Analysis.
