On March 29, Green Mountain Transit (GMT) began testing a 40-ft battery-electric transit bus in revenue service. The bus, manufactured by BYD, is the first of its kind operating in transit service across the nation. It utilizes BYD’s proprietary Iron-Phosphate battery, produces zero emissions, and boasts a 160 mile range on a single charge. The battery-electric transit vehicle will be used throughout GMT’s transit system, including some LINK Express runs. Passengers can expect the ride to be similar to the buses in the current local bus fleet. The exception being that the BYD bus is not equipped with a fare box and will operate fare free!

This popular FREE event is for anyone seeking children's clothing and books. The swap will be held at Hinesburg Town Hall on Saturday, April 8, 9--10:30 a.m.
To ensure another successful swap, donate all gently-used children's clothing, sized infant to 14 and children's books, toddler to middle-school level. Drop off clothing and books at Hinesburg Town Hall on Friday, April 7, noon to 8 p.m., (no toys and no drop-offs on the day of the swap, please!). This is a great way to do your spring wardrobe switch, get new sizes for your own kids and pass on some clothing to friends and neighbors.
The swap is sponsored by Hinesburg Community Resource Center's Friends of Families Program.
Q: How does it work?
A: Donate as many gently used items as you want on April 7 (items will not be accepted on swap day). Volunteers will sort clothing by size and gender. We don't assign dollar values or tally up what you drop off. Participants in the swap can pick whatever they need for their families on April 8.

President Trump recently released his “skinny budget,” in which he recommends defunding the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, as well as many other American core cultural and educational institutions. While the “skinny budget” is just a recommendation and not a law, it should stir concern in those of us who value education and the arts.
At nearly the same time, you may have heard that Vermont PBS recently announced the exciting news that it has sold one of its four broadcast licenses in a Federal Communications Commission-sponsored auction. The FCC conducted the auction to further its goals of improving mobile internet service by reallocating broadcast airwaves to wireless carriers. The FCC will compensate Vermont PBS for the license with a one-time payment of approximately 56 million dollars.
