City of Burlington offers CCTA rider solutions for bus strike

Posted: Updated:

The Chittenden County Transportation Authority is striking today. The City of Burlington has offered these solutions for CCTA riders Monday.

· Downtown Parking: two City parking garages - the Lakeview Garage and the College Street Garage - normally have additional capacity during weekdays. The Lakeview Garage (45 Cherry Street) is accessed from lower Cherry Street next to Hotel Vermont. The College Street Garage (68 College Street) is accessed from College Street next to the entrance to People's United Bank. Both garages offer two hours of free parking. The maximum daily parking rate at both garages is $8.00.

· Carpooling: The State of Vermont operates a carpool matching service through Go Vermont, a resource for Vermonters who want to reduce the cost and environmental impact of driving. Commuters can learn more about Go Vermont by visiting this link: http://www.connectingcommuters.org.

· Special Services Transportation Agency (SSTA): The city of Burlington understands that a CCTA strike will not impact SSTA's provision of accessible transportation for people who have specialized mobility needs. SSTA can be reached at 802.878.1527.

· Offer to Help Your Neighbor: The city of Burlington encourages everyone to think about how you may be able to assist your family, friends, and neighbors with their mobility needs.

Some bus service will continue, GMTA will continue its Montpelier LINK Express and ATR will run its portion of the 116 Commuter. Follow this link for more information.
