|CCTA Transit Subsidies Programs|
Our Chittenden County Transportation Authority (CCTA) offers safe, convenient and affordable transportation with bus service in and around the Chittenden County region. In addition to its local transit routes, CCTA has three LINK Express routes which offer Wi-Fi service: the Montpelier LINK, Middlebury LINK and St. Albans LINK. CCTA offers commuter routes serving Milton, Hinesburg and Richmond.
All CCTA buses are equipped with easy-to-use bike racks. There's no extra charge for your bike, however, you do need to load and unload your own bike.

Champlain College and UVM Rides FREE - Unlimited Access Program
All Champlain College and University of Vermont faculty, staff and students with a valid ID, ride any CCTA bus anytime, anywhere, including the LINK Express for FREE. Just show the bus driver your ID then swipe it through the fare box card reader. If you need to take more than one bus to get to your destination, be sure to ask the driver for a transfer before you leave the bus.
Free College Street Shuttle
In our continued efforts to provide alternatives to driving and to reduce the number of vehicles traveling on city streets, we want to remind you to take the College Street Shuttle, Burlington's FREE public transportation loop that runs from Union Station on the Waterfront to the Fletcher Allen - MCHV campus. The next time you are traveling from downtown to the Hill or vice versa, consider taking the College Street Shuttle instead of your car.
