Public Meetings To Be Held Regarding Changes to Carroll County Blue
Loon Transit Service
The Federal Transit Administration requires
agencies receiving federal funds to provide public meetings when
changes are made to an existing transportation service. As a
recipient of federal funds, the Blue Loon will be holding four
public meetings over the next two weeks to obtain public input on
changes to their current service. The meeting agenda will provide an
understanding of the Blue Loon transit services, reasons for the
public meeting, a review of the proposed schedule with explanations
on why some changes are necessary, and gathering public input and
meetings are open to the public and all are welcomed. The Blue Loon
transit is a division of Tri-County Community Action Program and
does not discriminate against an individual based upon the person’s
race, color, disability, or national origin.
Transportation will be provided if the time slot is available. It is
best to call early and schedule a trip as the service is very busy.
Rides can be scheduled by calling toll free 1-866-752-6890.
For anyone unable to attend the meetings but
interested in reviewing
the proposed schedule, it is available here or by calling
1-866-752-6890 and requesting a proposed schedule be mailed
Anyone wanting to offer input on the proposed
schedule can email comments to
firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to: Attn: Beverly Raymond, 31
Pleasant St, Berlin, NH 03570 by June 7th.
The meeting schedule is as follows:
Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 12:30 p.m. -

CARROLL COUNTY TRANSIT’S PUBLIC ROUTE SYSTEM
The Carroll County Transit “Blue Loon” Public Route
began operating in January of 2012 and new, 16-passenger, wheelchair
accessible buses are now rolling through the county.
The Carroll County Transit system includes an all-day flex-route
that originates in Wolfeboro (Bus Route # 2), runs north along Route 28 to West Ossipee and continues north along Route 16, traveling to Conway, and
North Conway (Bus Route # 1). The service is provided using two buses running in
opposite directions (Bus Routes # 1 & 2). Additionally, a fixed-route connector operates twice
a day between West Ossipee and Laconia (Route #3). Transfer between the
bus routes takes place in West Ossipee. (SEE ANNOUNCEMENT ABOVE)
The service is referred to as a "flex route" due to
the fact that the buses travel on a designated route according to a
published schedule that includes additional time to allow the buses
to deviate to serve passengers within one quarter mile of the route.
The public flex route service,
which operates 5 days per week, is complemented by our
Door-to-Door service that began in December,
2010. The public route, used in conjunction with the Door-to-Door
service, enables people to get to places outside of the
Door-to-Door service areas within Carroll County. (SEE ANNOUNCEMENT
Tri-County CAP uses professional drivers with a commercial drivers license
and a passenger endorsement. All

record checked and are trained in Passenger Assistance,
Emergency Evacuation, and Defensive Driving per New Hampshire Department
of Transportation and Federal Transit Administration requirements.
