An integral component of our region’s transportation system is the public transit service provided by the Chittenden County Transportation Authority (CCTA). This system provides over 2.5 million trips each year, mostly in the greater Burlington area but also through its inter-regional connections via the Link Express. Many of its riders are dependent on the service given their age, mobility impairment or income level and without it would be unable to fully function in the area’s economy and community life.
Nearly all of the CCRPC’s regional transportation planning activities takes into consideration CCTA service and therefore coordinates closely with CCTA staff. As a consequence we will feature CCTA staff on nearly all of our many annual studies and monthly Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) meetings. And CCTA service figures prominently as well in our Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) contained in ECOS.
CCTA also undertakes its own planning activity most notably the periodic Transit Development Plans, the recommendations of which are incorporated into the MTP.
