MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Transportation Board is going to be hitting the road to gather public comment on state transportation policy.

The board is planning six hearings across the state in October and November to get comment on public transportation, train travel and highway safety, including bicycle and pedestrian safety.

They will also be asking about the possible legalization of marijuana.

The board identified the topics by working with the Vermont Agency of Transportation and the state’s 11 regional planning commissions.

Transportation Board Chairman Nick Marro says that in Vermont and across the country people are driving less and seeking alternatives to the car for travel.

Each year the board travels the state to discuss transportation issues.

The first meeting is scheduled for Oct. 14 in Rockingham.
