The Chittenden County Transportation Authority has purchased a fleet of bigger busses for its growing Link Express routes.
CCTA has seen ridership rise steadily on its commuter runs from Burlington to Montpelier and Middlebury, to nearly 147,000 passengers last year. To accommodate that growth, CCTA purchased seven new coach-style busses. The busses are the largest in the CCTA fleet, with 57 seats and room for four bicycles. They will be phased into service beginning next Monday.
The busses were paid for with a $3.4 million grant from the Federal Transit Administration.
