Ways to Support ACTR
Invest in ACTR
Consider making a charitable contribution to ACTR. It is an investment in the health and economic vitality of Addison County. Your dollar counts: ACTR’s federal and state funding require a local match, and every dollar donated to ACTR unlocks $4. Invest in your community. Thank you.
Become a Business Sponsor
ACTR’s business sponsorship program offers highly visible opportunities for local businesses to promote themselves with ACTR. The sponsorship vehicles are designed to support local businesses’ marketing objectives while at the same time allowing businesses to invest in our growing community transportation infrastructure and publicly show support for ACTR.
Customize a sponsorship package based on your organizational goals:
ACTR Bus Exteriors – Sponsor an 18” x 30” or 24″ x 57″ space on the outside of the buses – join Champlain Valley Equipment, Green Peppers and others who have discovered a highly visible way to promote their business on the side of our buses.
Bus Shelter Sponsorship – Weather and tamper resistant space for 11″ x 8.5″ or 11” x 17” displays on the Merchant’s Row Bus Shelter in downtown Middlebury. This location on the green in downtown is highly traveled. There are more than 50,000 rides per year associated with this bus stop – where all 6 ACTR bus routes originate and a stop on the Vermont Translines intercity bus route.
Bus Map and Schedule Brochure – The brochure publishes each fall and is available all year long in hard copy and as a downloadable file on the ACTR website. 10,000 hard copies are distributed annually. Prices start at $175 for 1″ x 3″ (you provide the artwork).
For more information about ACTR’s business sponsorship program, call 388-ACTR or email email@example.com.
Volunteer with ACTR
Volunteer to Drive
Our volunteer drivers provide an invaluable service for Addison County. Many residents need to get to medical appointments or buy food or have access to other critical services but have no transportation of their own and cannot use our buses.
As a volunteer for ACTR you give your time but receive many benefits in return.
- Reimbursement at the federal mileage rate for all miles driven.
- Discounts on tires and service at County Tire Center.
- Additional liability insurance coverage over and above your vehicle insurance.
- Medical insurance coverage if you are accidentally injured outside of your vehicle.
- Access to free driver training courses and potential vehicle insurance discounts.
And, most importantly you’ll feel good about helping those in need! Volunteer drivers play a crucial role in our organization. Contact ACTR to join the ACTR Volunteer Driver team – you will find it a rewarding experience!
Other ways to Volunteer
ACTR needs your help. Do you like marching in holiday parades? Walk along with the ACTR bus during the Memorial Day parades in Middlebury and Vergennes or the Bristol July 4th parade. Pass out brochures and candy to parade-goers. Do you have time to help gather petition signatures for ACTR? Each fall ACTR is required to submit petitions to towns in order to get on town ballots and ask for annual town funding. Do you like people? Staff an ACTR table at events in the county educating folks on ACTR’s role as the community transportation provider. Pass out brochures and ACTR stuff. Have other ideas? Contact ACTR.
