Westport Commuter Shuttle: Volunteers Sought for New Citizens Transit Committee

The committee will give insight on how public transportation can be more efficient in Westport.


First Selectman Gordon Joseloff issued an invitation for interested .

“The new committee will examine transit operations in Westport  and after school buses and offer recommendations on how these operations might be more efficient and serve our community better,” Joseloff said.

He said to operate the district in 2012-13 made clear the need to find ways to operate more efficiently.

“This could involve and other possible actions that will make the transit operations more efficient,”Joseloff said.

At the same time, he urged the cut in the Transit District budget enacted by the Board of Finance.

“Setting a six-month deadline to show improvements is too short a time to achieve such results and creates unnecessary uncertainties in the lives of commuters who rely on the shuttles,” Joseloff said.

He said those with experience in transit operations, management consultant work, or similar qualifications would be especially welcomed.

Interested applicants should submit a resume to selectman@westportct.gov or via mail to Selectman’s Office, . The deadline for applications is May 1.
