Public Transportation Access Info. Wanted
About 10 years ago, the ATC had a very good and detailed listing of
public transportation access points to the AT. Since that time, both the
ATC and I have lost this list. I would be very interested in putting
together a similar list. What information I am seeking is a list of any
type of public transportation that either crosses the AT or drops users
within a reasonable distance of the AT. I am not interested in people
who provide shuttle service, as the ATC already has such a list.
However, if you know of a town that gets bus or train service and also
has taxi service I would like to know about that although I would want to
limit the use of taxis to aprox. $15 one way. Because of the rural
nature of much of the trail, many of the areas are served by small rural
bus companies which makes getting this information together. If I get
enough information to make a decent list, I will forward the list to
the ATC and to anyone who requests it.
I would also like suggestions on how to get this information besides this
list. I am considering writing to the Chambers of Commerce for each
county the AT runs through. I also have thought of contacting each of
the maintaining clubs. Any suggestions?
