Woodmen Turnaround Proposal; More Public Involvement Opportunities

Times Staff Report

There will be several more opportunities to get involved on a proposed Town Trolley Turnaround on Woodmen Street, the Town announced today.

The Town of Mammoth Lakes and Eastern Sierra Transit Authority (ESTA) have been working together for many years to identify a solution to provide consistent public transit service to the Old Mammoth neighborhood. The Town is currently proposing to develop a bus turnaround at the intersection of Old Mammoth Road and Woodmen Street, with the goal of expanding transit opportunities in the Old Mammoth neighborhood.

We want your input! The Town is providing several opportunities for residents to learn about the project and voice their comments and concerns about the proposed turnaround itself and upcoming changes to transit service to the Old Mammoth neighborhood:
