Middlebury Lions donate to ACTR’s ‘Adopt-a-Bus’

MIDDLEBURY — Addison County Transit Resources (ACTR) has received a $6,000 “Adopt-a-Bus” sponsorship from Middlebury Lions Club. Each dollar of this local gift helps ACTR leverage $9 in federal funds to replace an aged bus. A new 22-passenger bus has now been ordered and will be ready for service this fall.
New buses make service safer and more reliable, ensuring riders can get to work, medical treatments, school and beyond with certainty and peace of mind. New buses also conserve fuel and reduce maintenance and repair costs, saving precious environmental and financial resources.
“We’re proud to support ACTR through our charitable giving fund,” said King Lion Paul Desabrais. “ACTR’s community transportation programs improve the lives of so many Addison County residents. We also respect their Dial-A-Ride volunteer driver program as a force for greater good in the community. It’s a nice fit for us and we couldn’t be happier to sustain their efforts.” 
In the past year, ACTR’s transportation system provided 168,387 rides. These rides allow community members to maintain their independence, gain and keep employment, and access critical healthcare services. 
To learn more about ACTR’s transportation services and volunteer opportunities, or to contribute to the capital campaign for fleet replacement, go to actr-vt.org or call 802-388-2287.
