To the editor:
To give credit where credit is due, the 2012 study of the transportation needs of seniors in Little Compton was undertaken by the Little Compton Wellness Center with the financial support of the Newport County Fund of the Rhode Island Foundation.
The Wellness Center’s consultant on the project was Maureen Maigret a transportation specialist from Warwick and most of the legwork on the project was done by Sheri Massa, the Wellness Center’s program director. We are also grateful to the Little Compton Police Department for helping in the distribution of the data collection survey.
The bus program which the Town Council has undertaken will help to alleviate significantly the serious transportation needs of the Town’s senior citizens documented in the Wellness Center’s report.
