Events, Resources & Updates

CATMA Employee Transportation Survey is Underway!

Our biennial Employee Transportation Survey is underway!  Over the past week or so, you should have received a personal invitation at your work email to participate in the survey.  Your responses are very important in planning and exploring mobility solutions in our community.  If you have already completed the survey, thank you.  If you did not receive your email invite, please contactkatie@catmavt.org.  We plan to close the survey at the end of the week and will draw raffle winners for an array of prizes, including Amazon and City Market gift cards!

New Carpool Service 

We are excited to announce that the State’s Go Vermont program launched a new carpool matching service and commuter rewards program last week!  CATMA has partnered with the State on this exciting resource that has our own URL and added incentives for CATMA members.  You can find a carpool, vanpool and other transportation options here: https://govermont.agilemile.com/catma

Jeffersonville Commuter Bus

We encourage anyone traveling along Route 15 through Jeffersonville, Cambridge, Jericho, Essex and surrounding towns to check out the new schedule and consider utilizing this service to and from work. Just one day a week can make a big difference! Here is the latest schedule. Please contact CATMA if you need assistance with commute planning.

Colchester Park & Ride Opening 11/9!

The State of Vermont will open a new Park & Ride at Exit 16, located off Route 7 in Colchester later this week. The lot includes 100+ parking spaces, bike racks, lighting with EV charging access and potential transit service in the future! This is a great opportunity to meet carpoolers and share a ride to work.  If you need help with planning your commute, please contact us.
