Public Transportation (City Bus)
The Chittenden County Transportation Authority (CCTA) is the local network of bus routes that extends throughout many cities and towns in Chittenden County and beyond, and includes frequent stops from early morning until late evening. The CCTA is how many students without a vehicle will get around once they arrive on campus - in part because admission is FREE with your CATcard (Your College ID which you'll recieve at Orientation). CCTA busses also run to Montpelier and surrounding areas.
If you're confused by the CCTA Route map - we recommend using Google Transit to help decipher the appropriate bus routes, times, and transfers you'll need to catch to get where you'd like to go.
