Bangor Area Comprehensive Transportation System (BACTS) is a nonprofit focusing on improving transportation in the greater Bangor region. BACTS is also the organization designated by federal and Maine state government to carry out transportation planning in the greater Bangor urbanized area. BACTS evaluates and approves proposed transportation improvement projects and facilitates communication between its member communities and state and federal transportation agencies.
BACTS is governed by a policy committee and an executive committee. The members of these committees are comprised of municipal officials (both elected and appointed) of the member cities and towns, members of the MaineDOT, FTA, and FHWA.
As the Metropolitan Planning Organization for the greater Bangor region, BACTS has a variety of resources available to assist with transportation planning and programming. BACTS resources include federal, state and local program information, historical studies and reports, and transportation data throughout the region.
