Transportation Board Releases Report on Millennials
The Transportation Board in January released its 2014 Annual Report, which documents the comments the Board received during a recent series of public forums that focused on the transportation needs and wants of young adults.
“People have told me they would move back to Bennington if they could get to Boston easier or to New York easier,” a Bennington participant said. “That bothers me. People are not staying or returning due to a lack of mobility… Just think what creating these connections would do for the economy.”

The report documents that this age group, often referred to as “millennials,” are not satisfied with Vermont's transportation services. The Board's report details the reasons why young people have concerns and documents their belief that transportation issues sometimes cause their peers to either move away from the state or to not consider Vermont when choosing a place to live, work and raise a family.
