MAST, the ZOOM Bus, and LD 673

I've been working with other members of MAST to promote LD 673, submitted by Representative Bradley Moulton of the York, Maine area. This bill would offer a significant improvement to the regional transportation infrastructure of Southern Maine.

In a nutshell, this bill would: (click here to read the bill)
  • Expand the existing ZOOM Bus route to go from York, to Augusta.
  • Require the MTA to turn over 3% of  its operating revenue for use on non-turnpike Maine roads.
  • Fund the installation of wifi on all ZOOM buses to encourage transit use as a more productive way to travel.
I made this poster to be used to promote the bill:

Some thoughts from others on LD 673:
  • Tux Terkel of the Portland Press Herald wrote this on the proposal.
  • Christian Milneil wrote this great op.ed. on the subject
  • The Conservation Law Foundation has posted this blog on the proposal.
Please consider telling your Maine legislator to support this bill!
