Public feedback sought for bus routes to Burlington and Vergennes
Middlebury, Vermont…Public feedback is sought on proposed changes to the LINK Express route from Middlebury to Burlington and Addison County’s in-county Tri-Town Vergennes Shuttle. Proposed changes for both routes will take effect on July 1 and public feedback will be considered thru June 10th. Weekday commuter runs on the LINK would transition from GMT to TVT buses and service would originate in Middlebury. Tri-Town Vergennes would gain new stops and better in-town circulation for Little City residents, all without affecting trip frequency or length.
TVT has worked to make the LINK transition as smooth as possible for existing riders. Most stop and departure times will remain the same except for morning southbound runs from Burlington. Public feedback will inform if there is sustaining ridership demand to bring back the second morning and evening commuter runs that were suspended by GMT during the pandemic.
Tri-Town Vergennes riders can familiarize themselves with new stop locations at Shaw’s, Dollar General, Armory Lane and Hillside Drive and preview new alternating flow into and out of downtown Vergennes via Green Street and Monkton Road.
On June 10th TVT will host a virtual public meeting at 10:00am and then repeat the same content at 6:00pm for those who could not attend in the morning. The meeting link will be posted to Tri-Valley Transit’s website
