MicroMOO2 will increase transit equity (Vermont)

  • Date: 04/03/2024

As a volunteer with the refugee resettlement agency ECDC, I've witnessed firsthand the challenges faced by low-income families in accessing reliable transportation, particularly in rural areas like southern Vermont.

That's why I'm thrilled to hear about the expansion of the MOOver in Brattleboro to include the MicroMOO2, a free taxi-like service set to launch on April 15. This initiative holds promise in addressing transportation barriers and fostering economic empowerment for residents, including those I volunteer with at ECDC.

The MicroMOO2 service, which will operate from 5 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, is a much-needed addition to Brattleboro's transportation landscape. Its flexible scheduling and accessibility will be a boon to individuals working late shifts, attending English classes, or engaging in other evening activities.

For families like the one I assist, who are diligently learning English and building new skills, reliable transportation is indispensable for maintaining employment and accessing essential services.
