Getting Around BTV: Green Mountain Transit

Since 1973, Green Mountain Transit (formerly CCTA) has served as our region’s public transport system. Throughout this period, it has occupied a vital role in helping Burlingtonians and visitors navigate our community. No matter where you’re headed, GMT has the capacity to get you there.

With a plethora of daily routes that all originate at their brand new downtown transit center, Green Mountain transit is uniquely situated to help commuters who live in and around Burlington. Buses run every half hour throughout BTV, as well as, South Burlington, Winooski, Essex, Essex JunctionWilliston and Shelburne.

For those coming in from further out, GMT runs three commuter buses that head to Jeffersonville, Milton and down Route 116 to Middlebury. GMT also operates three ‘LINK Express’ routes that offer coach bus service to St. Albans, Montpelier and Middlebury.

Green Mountain Transit is also valuable if you’re just trying to explore downtown Burlington. The City Loop takes riders around Burlington. The College Street Shuttle offers free service that takes riders from the boathouse at the bottom of College Street, up to the University of Vermont. Riders can hop off at and explore Church Street along the way.

GMT launched a website for their NextGen Transit Plan, which is focused on improving their services and better integrating urban and rural services. Detailed plan information can be found here. Give your feedback on the plan and help make it valuable to you, by visiting their feedback page here.

Navigating Burlington for work or play has never been easier. With public transport from Green Mountain Transit, you don’t always need a car to get to where you need to go. For information about fares head to their website.
