Offer a ride, look for a ride—an online database for Middlebury College students, faculty and staff to share information about the occasional availability of ride sharing to destinations near and far from campus.
McCullough Ride Board
There is a bulletin board in the McCullough Student Center Mailroom as a service for students and the Middlebury community to share transportation resources. The Ride Board can help when planning longer distance trips, for example, for traveling over the weekend, summer or breaks.
The board is self-service. Riders indicate whether they are offering or seeking a ride, location around the city, state or country, and dates, if applicable.
Vermont Rideshare is available to Addison County workers through the Chittenden County Transportation Authority. It offers a free, computer generated matchlist of names, phone numbers and schedules of neighbors who want to share a ride to and from their workplaces.
They also offer a free emergency ride home program if you participate in carpooling two or more days per week. Learn more at: Go Vermont
