Wildwood Families, if you use the B43 bus, please answer this important survey, especially if you are someone who relies on it to do things like shopping or getting to medical appointments in between Amherst and Northampton. MassDOT is considering cutting some stops to make it an Express, and routing the bus up 116 to Haigis Mall at UMass and back again, not going through the center of Amherst.
Results from this survey, which will be shared with the DOT and PVTA to help inform their strategy regarding the proposed changes to bus service on Route 9. This survey will take approximately two minutes to complete, and the deadline for responding is next Wednesday, Dec. 20. Members of our community who regularly make use of the PVTA’s B43 service should take special note of this opportunity to communicate with the DOT.
