2022 Chittenden County Park and Ride Plan

5.6 MB
Year:
2022
Theme:
Park and Ride, TDM, Transit
Description:
Beginning in 2021, the CCRPC embarked on an update of the Chittenden County Park & Ride Plan. This plan identifies opportunities for improvements to the existing facilities and evaluates the potential for new facilities that will benefit commuters and residents throughout Chittenden County and the adjacent communities. The Plan created a vision statement for the purpose and function of park & rides, completed an inventory of existing facilities, prioritized a list of park & ride and intercept facilities, and created an implementation plan. The updated Plan incorporates elements from the 2011 Plan using a revised approach to account for the many changes in the demand for park & rides, remote work, and general changes in travel behavior.

768.4 kB
Year:
2022
Theme:
public transportation, Transit
Description:
Concerned about the cost of operating two separate call centers for demand response services in the GMT service area, particularly in light of changes in ridership brought about by the COVID-19 public health emergency, GMT and its Chittenden County service contractor, Special Services Transportation Agency (SSTA), partnered with the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) to undertake this study of consolidated call center options for the two organizations. The objective of the project was to update information presented in the 2018 report about the operations of GMT and SSTA, with a focus on the demand response service reservations and scheduling/dispatch functions, and to identify and evaluate options for a consolidated call center.

Transit Financing Study

1.9 MB
Year:
2021
Theme:
Transit
Description:
With the passage of the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, there is expected to be a 35% increase in transit funding above the FAST Act investment levels; additional resources at the local level to serve as matching funds will likely be needed. Rather than just continuing to lean on existing sources of revenue, this renewed need for local funding offers the opportunity to overhaul how transit is funded both in the Chittenden County metropolitan area and in the rural parts of Vermont.

Description:
The three contiguous communities of Cambridge, Underhill, and Jericho are seeking to develop a comprehensive “alternative” transportation system (i.e. one that does not rely heavily on single-occupancy auto) to serve their residents. This area has come to be called the “Tri-Town” area. The purpose of this study is to examine the range of possibilities for accomplishing this including various modes and services, organizational and administrative structures, and funding. It is intended that the results be relevant not only to the Tri-Town area but also for other rural portions of the GMT region.
