Travel Smarter is a program of Go! Chittenden County, a partnership of the region’s best transportation service providers, organizations, and advocates.
We’ve teamed up to create an easy trip planner to help you get around whether you want to walk, bike, bus, or drive. We want to make our services and programs accessible and convenient for businesses and residents alike so that it’s easier to get to work, school, or play. By choosing not to drive alone, we can reduce traffic congestion, better the environment, and enhance the livability of our communities. It’s a win-win-win!
