CCTA Ridership Increases
Ridership on Chittenden County’s bus line is steadily increasing as residents are looking for ways to combat rising gas prices and save money. Overall ridership in Vermont has risen over 6% since last year, and the LINK Express routes, such as Montpelier to Burlington, have increased by 46%. Large employers in Chittenden County are contributing to this increase in ridership by offering to purchase bus passes for their employees. A $42 local pass allows a rider unlimited travel. Plus, it eliminates the frustration of finding a parking spot. More information about CCTA routes and schedules can be found at their website, cctaride.org.
