M8 - Provide Amenities for Public Transit Passengers

DPIC's transit working group has been in discussion with Norwalk Transit Authority regarding the funding and placement of bus shelters along Post Road in Westport.  Thanks to a $15,000 grant from the Westport Rotary to match funds available through Norwalk Transit Authority, there is a possibility of constructing up to five shelters.  The group is working with Norwalk Transit, the Westport Transit Directors, and the GBTA to find appropriate locations for the possible shelters.  

  • While three possible bus shelter locations were originally considered, only one is still viable due to various safety, right-of-way, and traffic issues. The working group is now focusing its efforts on this one location.
