Ride the Bus month kicks off in Bangor

Written by

BANGOR - The area advocacy group Transportation for All was busy Tuesday kicking off Ride the Bus Month with a party in Pickering Square.

Advocates say that Greater Bangor's bus system is working well now but they want to see it improved.


"The No. 1 thing we're advocating for is extended bus hours," said Theodore Rippy, a member of the organization.


"Extended bus hours would help people who work in the evenings," Rippy said. "They work out at Walmart and different places around, and they would be able to get to work and back. And I'm quite sure that would help the community."


The group consists of bus riders, drivers and public transit supporters.
