Transportation & Parking
Despite our location in a rural state, we are fortunate to have a variety of transportation options to assist you in your commute to campus. Ultimately, we hope to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles coming to campus, and the resources listed below are our path to doing so, especially through our membership with CATMA and partnerships with CCTA and CarShare Vermont. We also recommend Go Chittenden County for general commuting information and resources.

Employee Commuter Benefits for Champlain employees
Champlain College Shuttle—Currently services main campus, Lakeside and Spinner Place.
Champlain College students who park offsite at the Gilbane lot, or who reside at 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.
This carpool matching service, coordinated by Go! Vermont makes it easy to find the right commute for you. The Zimride matching service helps take the "what if" out of carpooling, by letting you see other riders' profiles and setting the financial arrangements up front.
CarShare Vermont—A network of vehicles parked in convenient spots all over town, including one at Champlain— located in the Perry Hall parking lot, that you can use by the hour or day whenever you need to drive.
*Champlain College does not have an official relationship with any of these businesses.
