The public is welcome to attend Transportation Committee meetings that focus on enhancing sustainable, low-energy transportation for MDI. Our agenda will primarily focus on assembling a current list of all the places that have charging stations on the Island (publicly accessible and private), pushing the Ride Share and Carpool MDI Facebook page, along with working with Hancock County to install walking trails. We will also have time to continue discussion of EV's and bicycling.
We promote awareness of resources already available, developing new initiatives, and changing mentalities and behaviors about how we travel. Our projects include growing the island’s electric vehicle infrastructure, reducing the number of gas miles accounted for by year-round residents, creating a robust culture of ride sharing and car pooling, and promoting bike culture, access, and resources.
