Are you a train lover? A bus devotee? A carpool zealot? A regular person who also dreams of improved public transit? Brave Little State wants to hear from you.
UPDATE: We are no longer taking submissions. Thanks to everyone who shared ideas with us! Listen to our episode here.
Brave Little State is VPR’s people-powered journalism podcast: You ask the questions, you decide what we investigate and then we find the answers together. For our December episode, we’re taking on this question from Eve Jacobs-Carnahan, of Montpelier:
"What will it take to create an effective public transit system that enables Vermonters to dramatically reduce automobile use?"
While we'll talk to the experts, we also want to hear from YOU. What is your dream public transit improvement for Vermont?
A few people have already shared their ideas with us:
If you want to add your two cents, follow the instructions below to leave us a voicemail or record yourself at home. We may include your submission in our upcoming episode. Thanks!
Here’s how to share your experience:
- By phone | Call us at 802-552-4880 and leave a short message. One minute max, please! Briefly describe what changes you'd love to see in Vermont's public transit offerings. Be sure to include your name, where you live and your phone number, so we can get back in touch with you.
- By smartphone | If you have a smartphone, use the voice memo feature to record yourself. Sit in a quiet room with lots of soft surfaces (furniture, carpeting), or venture into your closet. Listen back to your recording to make sure it sounds OK, and then email it to us at email@example.com. We'll reply to let you know we got it.

Correction 4:54 p.m. 11/10/19 The instructions for a voicemail submission above originally requested that the caller "briefly describe your hippie credentials." We mistakenly copied that language from a previous request for input; we require no such background for ideas on public transit!
