The Chittenden County Transportation Authority (CCTA) was chartered
in 1973 by the Vermont General Assembly after the private bus operator
went out of business. CCTA serves the communities of Burlington, Essex,
South Burlington, Shelburne, Williston, Winooski, Milton, Hinesburg, and
a portion of Colchester. LINK Express routes serve Montpelier,
Middlebury, and St. Albans commuters. CCTA is considered a municipality
and is the first and only transit authority in the State of Vermont.
In 2011, CCTA and the Green Mountain Transit Agency (GMTA) became a
single unified organization, making CCTA the first and only regional
transit authority in the State of Vermont. Outside of Chittenden County,
in Washington, Lamoille, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties, CCTA
operates as GMTA and provides a variety of public transportation
services including local routes, commuter routes, demand response
medical shuttles, and service to elders and persons with disabilities.

CCTA is currently governed by a thirteen member Board of Commissioners
with two Commissioners each representing Burlington, Essex, Hinesburg,
Shelburne, South Burlington, Milton, Williston and Winooski.
