Intercity bus service in Montana continues to be in a state of evolution. This Bozeman Daily Chronicle article highlights Montana's challenges of long distances, culture, and lack of funding. Current Transportation staff talked to the reporter about the situation.
Salt Lake Express is restoring intercity bus service between Butte, Helena, and Great Falls with connections to the national bus network. We assisted Salt Lake Express in reaching the media with this news. The status of this and other Montana intercity bus services can be found at www.mtndintercity.wordpress.com.
Stakeholders participated in a variety of outreach activities focused on: 1) developing a clearer picture of the transportation needs of stakeholders in the county, especially the needs of residents in areas of the county that are not currently served by the Helena Area Transit Service (HATS) like the “North Valley;” and 2) bringing stakeholder organizations together to create a strong voice for the needs of the populations they serve with regards to transportation, and to start to build consensus on recommendations for improving service to meet these needs.
