Improving Economic Health
With the average annual cost of owning/operating a car in Vermont rising above $7,500, greater pressure has been placed on household budgets to ensure access to transportation. In our service area, the cost of owning and operating a vehicle is more expensive than owning a home!
- TVT’s bus system provides rides to and/or from work, school, shopping places and town centers.
Improving Social Health
With 25% of our population at risk of being transit-dependent and the rural nature of our state, the potential for being hidden at home increases. Transit-dependent members of our community are prone to rural isolation which has significant impact on their well-being.
- TVT’s Bus and Dial-a-Ride systems provide rides to medical appointments, meal sites, nursing/retirement homes, recreational and social service destinations.
Improving Environmental Health
Most of the travel in our region is done in cars, and most of that is done alone.
- Riding the bus helps our region produce less greenhouse gases, better water quality, and improved health while still enjoying access to jobs, goods and services.
Volunteer with Tri-Valley Transit
Volunteer to Drive
Our Community Rides drivers provide an invaluable service for our community. Many residents need to access healthcare and critical services, but have no transportation and cannot use our buses. Community Rides Drivers play a vital role in our organization providing these trips for people in need. Drivers volunteer their time and are reimbursed for mileage at the GSA rate.
