Explore taking the bus to work or school

The Upper Valley enjoys one of the best rural transit systems in the country. With several companies offering service to major workplaces in the area, it’s easier than you might think to find a bus to take to work. If you live and work in the central towns of the Upper Valley (Hartford, Lebanon, etc.), give Advance Transit a try – it’s free! Real-time bus tracking system and trip planner available at AdvanceTransit.com!

Commuting from further away? Stagecoach and Connecticut River Transit offer pick-ups as far away as Springfield, Bradford, Montpelier, and Wells River. Southwestern Community Services offers community bus service in Claremont, Newport, and Charlestown.

Find your route on Google Transit or the new Go! Vermont Trip Planner (in pilot phase so submit your feedback!)

— Paige Heverly, Energy and Transportation Project Coordinator

Paige Heverly joined Vital Communities in 2017 as the Energy and Transportation Project Coordinator. Hailing from the suburbs of Philadelphia, she moved to Vermont in 2011 and earned a joint BA in Renewable Energy and Ecological Design and Environmental Studies from Green Mountain College. After completing her Master of Energy Regulation and Law from Vermont Law School, Paige worked in energy efficiency consulting in Portland, Oregon. Her love of local food systems, the White River, and the Green Mountains brought her back to the Upper Valley to work on regional issues with localized solutions. Paige is passionate about closing ecological loops and treating waste as food. In her free time, she enjoys baking homemade English muffins, weeding her garden, and writing letters to her pen pals.
