Charlotte park-and-ride set to close
CHARLOTTE — The Vermont Agency of Transportation announced last week that it will close the state-operated Charlotte park-and-ride lot located on Ferry Road at the train station effective Nov. 30. Officials said the 35-space lot simply isn’t being used enough to warrant their efforts to maintain it for year-round access.
The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, in coordination with the town of Charlotte and the participation of other interested parties including regional public transit providers, is currently studying potential new park and ride locations more favorably situated to better serve the traveling public.
For a map of alternative park and ride locations, go online to www.parkandrides.vermont.gov. It lists one state-operated park-and-ride lot in Addison County — a 77-space lot near the intersection of Route 7 and 22A in Ferrisburgh — and smaller municipal park-and-ride lots in Starksboro, Waltham, New Haven, Bridport, Cornwall, Leicester and Hancock, plus a lot on Route 7 in Brandon.
