LINK BUSES WELCOME BACK BIKES
March 30, 2011 – The Chittenden County Transportation Authority (CCTA) is pleased that the headlights on all of the LINK buses have been reconfigured so that bikes may once again ride the LINK buses to and from Middlebury, Montpelier, and Saint Albans.
“Safety comes first at CCTA, and when there is a concern, we take immediate action.” says Peter Aube, Maintenance Manager. “When the LINK bus drivers had an issue this past January with bike racks blocking the LINK headlights, we researched, reconfigured, and road tested until we were sure that the safety issue had been resolved.”
Walking or biking to and from the bus adds up to a great way to commute for work, play, or everyday appointments while decreasing carbon emissions and traffic congestion. CCTA thanks you for making a difference when you choose to ride.
The mission of CCTA is to operate safe, convenient, accessible, innovative and sustainable public transportation services in the Chittenden County region that reduce congestion and pollution, encourage transit oriented development and enhance the quality of life for all.
