On Campus Bus (CATSride)

The CATS transportation system provides safe and convenient shuttle service to the UVM community (students, staff, and visitors). The goal of the service is to support alternatives to driving and to help reduce the number of vehicles traveling on city streets and parking in lots on campus.  CATS buses are run by either compressed natural gas (CNG), Hybrid Electric/Diesel or Diesel.  The CATS system is handicapped accessible.

CATSride is a service that connects off-campus UVM offices with one another and also with the main UVM campus. The service is available to all members of the UVM community and serves office, classroom, and lab locations within a ten-mile radius of campus.
