Champlain College, in conjunction with Mountain Transit, operates a free shuttle-bus system for students and employees between the CCM Center on main campus, 194 Saint Paul Street Apartments, the Miller Center at 175 Lakeside Avenue, and 115 Lakeside Avenue (the residential Student parking lot, formerly named Gilbane.)

For Fall 2020, we will be operating two shuttle buses at reduced capacity due to distancing requirements. To allow for increased airflow, we will be using the classic yellow school buses with all windows open at all times. All riders will be required to wear a face covering over both nose and mouth the entire trip; anyone not wearing a face covering will be refused access or asked to disembark from the shuttle. The shuttle will be disinfected at multiple times throughout the day. Each bus will be an express bus to only one destination and back until 6:00 PM each weekday, and combined on nights and weekends. 

The schedule is as follows:

  • The Lakeside Commuter will operate 6:30–9:30 AM and 3:00–6:00 PM only (peak commutes) and will go direct between CCM and Lakeside, with no stop at 194 Saint Paul Street.
  • The 194 Express will operate 7:45 AM–6:00 PM and will go direct between 194 St. Paul Street and CCM, with no stops at Lakeside.
  • The Night shuttle will operate 6:00–9:30 PM, and will service all locations (CCM to 194 to Lakeside and return.)
  • The Weekend Shuttle will operate 10:00 AM–8:00 PM, and will service all locations (CCM to 194 to Lakeside and return.)

Residents of 194 St. Paul Street can access Lakeside by catching the GMT Green Line city bus (picks up on the corner of the building and runs every 30 minutes), use our shuttles by transferring at CCM, or walk/bike.

We intend to monitor ridership each day of the first two weeks and may adjust the schedules based on the ridership data we see.

Driver Breaks. The driver of the 194 Express will take a break during the middle of the day for lunch. This time has not been determined yet. It will be based on ridership numbers to have the least impact as possible. More information will be provided during the first week of classes.
