More bus service to Burlington from Addison County
Effective Tuesday, November 1, 2022, Tri-Valley Transit (TVT) will double frequency of service on the weekday Link to Burlington. This commuter express route connects Middlebury to Burlington and points in between along the Route 7 corridor. Key destinations include Vermont Teddy Bear, VT Day School, Shelburne Road (near Waldorf School), UVM Medical Center and the Burlington Downtown Transit Center. There is no change at this time to the Saturday Link to Burlington schedule. All TVT buses are fare-free.
Northbound buses will depart Middlebury Academy Street at 6:15am, 7:15am, 3:20pm and 4:00pm. Southbound departures from the Burlington Downtown Transit Center will be at 7:45am, 8:45am, 4:50pm and 5:30pm.
“When TVT assumed operation of the Link to Burlington in July 2021, it was only operating one round-trip per day due to the prevalence of pandemic-influenced telecommuting and telehealth,” said Executive Director, Jim Moulton. “Since then, demand for the service has been growing. But TVT had to delay expansion until we could hire/train drivers and purchase new buses at a time when both resources were scarce. It is so gratifying to have all the pieces in place to give commuters more travel options. We’re also excited to offer free WiFi on the Link buses so commuters can catch up on work and social needs.”
