ACTR to offer free shuttlebus to Field Days
MIDDLEBURY — Addison County Transit Resources (ACTR) will once again provide free rides for visitors to Addison County Fair and Field Days, thanks to the support of Champlain Valley Equipment. Daily runs will occur via the expanded Tri-Town Shuttle Bus Route from Tuesday, Aug. 5, to Saturday, Aug. 9. Fairgoers can access this service in Middlebury, Bristol, New Haven and Vergennes.
ACTR has provided this “fare-free” community transportation service for more than 10 years. This year the expanded service to the fair was in danger of being cut unless a local supporter was found to underwrite the cost. “Champlain Valley Equipment has stepped in to ensure everyone has an affordable way to enjoy this annual tradition,” said Mary-Claire Crogan, community relations specialist at ACTR.
Brian Carpenter, general manager of Champlain Valley Equipment, agreed to the partnership with ACTR. “Champlain Valley Equipment is happy for this opportunity to give back to the community and at the same time celebrate Addison County’s rich agricultural heritage,” Carpenter said.
From Tuesday, Aug. 5, through Friday, Aug. 9, ACTR’s Tri-Town Vergennes Shuttle, which connects Middlebury and Vergennes, will be dropping fairgoers off mid-morning with return service in the early evening. Riders from Bristol and New Haven may access the Vergennes Shuttle in New Haven Center. On Saturday, Aug. 9, service will run continuously between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. For a detailed schedule, call ACTR at 388-ACTR (2287), visit www.actr-vt.org or ask a bus driver for the expanded schedule.
