Transportation & Parking
Here at Champlain, we see the area's transportation system as a thriving network. We know your travel through the area and ultimately to and from campus will often take you from one system to another. Thus, we strive to make travel planning easier by maintaining current information about these interrelated systems here.
We also maintain membership in CATMA and major partnerships with CCTA and CarShare Vermont as a vital part of our services. Also check out Go Chittenden County for general commuting information and resources.
Questions about how to get from one place to another? See our Commuter FAQs.

Employee Commuter Benefits:
Champlain College students who park offsite at the Gilbane lot, or who reside at Quarry Hill or Spinner Place will be issued a CATMA Emergency Ride Home Card to their campus mailbox. This CommuteSmart card enables students to get to/from main campus and these sites when shuttles or CCTA buses are not running. Instructions for use of this program can be found on the back of the CATMA card. These cards are issued to eligible students at the onset of each semester. If a student at these sites hasn't received their card please send an email to: email@example.com.
All employees who obtain a permit to park offsite at the Lakeside Avenue campus will automatically be enrolled in CATMA's Emergency Ride Home Program and will receive a personalized Commute Smart Card. This program provides employees with a FREE taxi ride to their vehicle at Lakeside in the event of an emergency and/or our shuttle isn't available. For eligible emergency uses and information on commuter programs and incentives, visit www.catmavt.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-656-RIDE.
CarShare Vermont A network of vehicles parked in convenient spots all over town, including two at Champlain, that you can use by the hour or day whenever you need to drive.
