There is a public transit to the national life building, where there are
about 575 not 5000 state employees, the transit is Wheels.
Please ask for info instead of lambasting the state, which is outgorwing the
geophysical constraints of the Winooski Valley and attempting to reuse
buildings insteads of sprawling out in new places. There is also a capital
district master plan which has infill development and a multimodal transit
center proposed, pending state and federal legislative funding, etc.
The Wheels buses, like the Advance Transit buses here in White River, have
bike racks on the front. In my years working in Montpelier and here I have
never seen a single bike on the bus or the bus too full to exclude bringing
a bike in the bus. So, I am not sure this is a real impediment to
multi-modal transportation yet. If we could have the bike racks and the
buses fill up then we could really make a case for changes and improvements.
Until then, we don't have a biking population to make the case.
My 2 cents.
