Middlebury encourages students, staff, faculty, and community to act sustainably whenever possible—and that includes getting from point A to point B. Several useful transportation resources can help.
Tri-Valley Transit (TVT)
Middlebury students, staff, and faculty with their Middlebury ID can ride for free on regularly scheduled TVT buses around town and to the Middlebury College Snow Bowl. You can even bring your bike on board!
TVT also offers commuter buses to Burlington, Rutland, and neighboring towns. Staff and faculty ride commuter buses for free when they pick up a bus sticker from Human Resources. Students must pay for commuter buses.
Check out the map and schedules or call 802-388-1946 or 800-685-RIDE (7433).
Midd Rides is an evening transportation service available to Middlebury College community members. It operates each night during the academic year when classes are in session.
Sunday–Thursday, 7:30 p.m.–1:30 a.m.
Friday and Saturday, 8:30 p.m.–2:30 a.m.
- Zimride is a ride-sharing network that helps you offer or request rides for commutes, road trips, and popular events. Find others going the same way you are.
- Wheeli connects college students with cars and college student passengers looking for a ride. Students split driving costs, make new friends and reduce their carbon footprint by filling empty car seats.
- Vermont Rideshare offers a free list 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.
