CarShare Vermont for Campuses
CarShare Vermont has is promoting a joint-program with UVM and Champlain College to provide a free membership to CarShare Vermont. Check out the promo page for information about eligibility, rates, and campus CarShare parking locations.
CCTA has a new bus route called The 116 Commuter (PDF), which serves the Route 116 corridor from Middlebury to Burlington.
CCTA on Google Transit
CCTA's schedule is now reflected in Google Transit. Google transit extends the well-known Google Map route finding and directions features (potentially) across any combination of four modes of transportation: walking, biking, mass transportation, and vehicle.
Since Burlington has such a well-travelled network of pedestrian and bike routes, this set of features is bound to have a lot use for many people.
