Some entrepreneurs are hoping to fill the void in public transportation when Vermont Transit stops serving the Northeast Kingdom. Vermont Transit is ending its bus service between Newport and White River Junction on April fourth. The company says it wasn’t getting enough passengers to justify the cost of the routes.
But Ed Boutwell, the owner of a bus company that carries people between Rutland and Connecticut, says he is working on a plan to expand his service in the Northeast Kingdom. Boutwell says he hopes to have a plan within about three months.
