In an effort to do our part to fight the coronavirus pandemic, BACTS staff will be working remotely for two weeks starting today. We plan to resume regular office operations on Monday, April 13, 2020. During this time, staff will continue to conduct business as usual, working diligently on transportation planning and programming for the BACTS region.
We have set up access to ZOOM, which will allow us to interact with each other, as well as our members, in a virtual platform. We are happy to schedule a ZOOM meeting to discuss any business that would otherwise be done in person. BACTS staff can also be reached via email, during our normal business hours. Thank you all for your cooperation during this unusual time. If you have any questions or need to reach me, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
On March 17, 2020, the BACTS Policy Committee unanimously approved the BACTS 2020-2023 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and is pending federal approval. The Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) incorporated the BACTS TIP in the draft Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), which is currently posted for a 30-Day public comment period. At the end of the public comment period, the STIP will be finalized and sent to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for joint for approval.
