BRTA Public Meetings on Proposed Service Changes
04:00PM / Tuesday, March 08, 2022
Print | Email  

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Regional Transit Authority (BRTA) will be holding public meetings to receive comments on the proposed service changes that would go into effect on July 1, 2022.
 
The BRTA continually evaluates the performance of its bus routes and other services. Successful services may be improved, while other services may need to be revised. These service changes are necessitated due to changes in ridership patterns, vehicles, staffing levels, and funding.
 
BRTA's Advisory Board authorized these public meetings to receive comments on the proposed service changes at their Board meeting held on Feb. 24, 2022.
 
The proposed options for the Fixed Route bus service include:
  • Timetable/bus schedule adjustments, both weekday and Saturday Routes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 11, 12, 14,15, 21, 21X, and 34
  • Route travel pattern adjustments Routes: 1, 3, 4, 11, 14, 15, and 21
  • Bus stop location or name changes Routes: 1, 3, 4, 5, 12, 14, and 15
  • Limited additions Route: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 11, 12, 14, 15, and pilot micro-transit option
  • Limited reductions Route: 4 and 14
  • Discontinued service Route:16 and 22
Detailed information on the proposed service changes will be on our website at www.berkshirerta.com and will be discussed at the public meetings. All public comments will be given to BRTA's Advisory Board for their final decision to be made in late Spring 2022.
 
Public comments may be submitted until April 15, 2022.
