August 1, 2011 Schedule Implementation
Mrs. Carroll reported on the implementation of the new schedule and the feedback from commuters. Some modification to times will be required, however, it is minimal. Ridership for the first eight days was shared with the Directors.
Mr. Titsworth suggested reaching out to the property managers on Hills Lane to market new S-1. Both Directors thought it would be beneficial to attend a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Merchants Association to promote the services to the downtown as well as the Y’s Men of Weston/Westport.
Mr. Titsworth reported that URS was selected as the “Connecticut Commuter Services” contractor. They will now be the contact for promoting commuter services in the region.
Mrs. Carroll reported that funding with the State was at FY’11 levels until such time as a new State budget is adopted, based on the results of the State employees union vote.
Mr. Titsworth requested information on the progress of the Coastal Corridor Study and the data on on/offs along Route 1.
Mr. Hood requested that the Norwalk Transit District have the auditors prepare a statement concerning the methodology employed to allocate expenses to Westport services.
There was no other business.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 9:15 AM.
