The bus was a deciding factor in our decision to move to OceanView in Falmouth. We realized we should not drive any more, but were otherwise self sufficient – a familiar story and accelerating trend. The Flyer is our link to daily needs. The schedule is convenient; the route provides access at key points on the way to Portland; the drivers are unfailingly accommodating. For us the bus is a “problem solved.” Our thanks to the Falmouth Town Council and the federal government, which pays about a third of the cost.

Big picture: Across the nation, regional plans, like Falmouth development, include transportation systems. This is no time to lose the bus. Vote no on Falmouth Question 1.
