Transportation & Parking
Champlain College is a founding member of the Campus Area Transportation Management Association (CATMA), along with "Hill Institutions" Fletcher Allen and UVM. Champlain's partnership with CATMA provides it the opportunity to jointly manage and share resources, to better coordinate land use, reduce congestion and lessen environmental impacts on the Hill and the community.
CATMA is a non-profit membership organization whose mission is to strategically develop and improve transportation options, and mobility options (including goals of promoting accessibility and "walkability") at member institutions. CATMA has worked with its founding members and other Burlington businesses for over twenty years, offering employers a comprehensive employee commute program.
CATMA provides and promotes transportation options and assistance to employees and students of its member institutions. The benefits of commuting by bike, bus, carpool and walk include saving money, reducing stress, enhancing health, making friends and lessening our impact on the environment. Champlain College strongly encourages its employees to take advantage of the commuter programs and services offered through CATMA.
