Ware-Palmer Shuttle & Quaboag Microtransit Virtual Public Meetings
The PVTA Advisory Board approved PVTA holding Virtual Public Hearings the Ware-Palmer Shuttle and the Quaboag Microtransit at their January 27, 2021 Advisory Board Meeting.
PVTA and the Quaboag Connector have received funding to acquire scheduling software for the Quaboag region that will allow us to integrate portions of our system in the Palmer/Ware area with Quaboag's to coordinate service and provide more effective transit solutions. This partnership will allow us to enhance service in the area, including resuming a second circulator operated by Quaboag Connector. Hulmes will operate a redefined deviated fixed-route circulator in Palmer and provide more frequent connections to Springfield both at Union Station and the Eastfield Mall area of Springfield. Once the scheduling software is installed, we will initiate a microtransit option in the region. This will allow for the scheduling of same-day trips and provide access to transit for riders who live within ¾ mile of the fixed route. Because these changes will likely impact the number of service hours and miles significantly, public hearings need to be held.
