Commuter Bus Service Begins

Commuter bus service between Ripton and Middlebury began today, October 30. Addison County Transit Resources will be providing service to Middlebury at 7:30 and 8:30 am on Thursdays and Fridays. This bus stops at the Ripton Town Office, the Ripton Store, and will pick up passengers on Maiden Lane and lower Peddlers Bridge Road. Return trips leave Middlebury at 4:45 and 5:45 pm. Some midday runs are also scheduled.

Schedules and tickets are available at the Ripton Store and the Ripton Town Office. A ten trip ticket costs $9. Exact change is accepted on board, as well.

This service provides an inexpensive and relaxing way to get to work, and also makes a significant cut in greenhouse gas emissions.
