Employee transportation benefit: Make your commute cheaper, easier, and more sustainable

Middlebury staff and faculty ride all CCTA and ACTR buses for FREE, including the commuter buses to Burlington and Rutland. Riding CCTA and/or ACTR buses saves you money while lowering your carbon footprint.

ACTR bus routes and schedules / CCTA bus routes and schedules

To ride the free commuter buses, you will need a sticker from Human Resources for your Middlebury ID card:

  1. Go to Human Resources with your Middlebury ID Card and ask for the CCTA/ACTR sticker for your ID
  2. When you ride an CCTA or ACTR bus, show your Middlebury ID to the bus driver
  3.  The College reimburses rides on CCTA and ACTR commuter buses at NO expense to staff and faculty

NOTE: This is a staff and faculty benefit only. While students ride the Middlebury ACTR buses for free, they pay for the commuter buses.
