As Door County continues to grow older while also trying to attract younger people, members of local government and other organizations are looking into how to improve transportation in the area. Representatives from the city of Sturgeon Bay, Door County, the Door County Economic Development Corporation, Door-Tran, and other agencies met in one of the first meetings of the Transportation Resource Improvement Partners (TRIP). Door-Tran Mobility Manager Pam Busch says along with TRIP promoting what is already available to residents in Door County, the new partnership also hopes to make other improvements to transportation in the region.
Door-Tran had over 360 responses to their Accessible Transportation Community Initiative Survey that was completed earlier this month, which showed the community is open to more public transit and shared rides options but are not aware of the services that are already available.
