Transportation

I love it here. I have no other reason why I would have stayed so long. But, I have to be brutally honest.

To be sure, Vermont's basic charm is in its rural nature, but when it comes to getting here and getting around, that very charm can be somewhat of a drawback. If you don't come by car or rent one when you arrive, you'll soon develop a pretty good understanding of what we mean by "you can't get there from here."

Rail:

AMTRAK comes from New York City via Hartford, Connecticut, up the Connecticut River Valley to White River Junction, parallels I-89 past Montpelier to Essex Junction, then on to St. Albans. There's also route that comes up the Hudson Valley from New York City through Whitehall to Rutland. There is no rail service into the southwest or northeast corners of Vermont. With the economy the way it is in late 2008, we're in danger of losing what rail service we have.

Bus:

Vermont Transit serves Burlington, Bellows Falls, Brattleboro, Montpelier, Rutland and White River Junction, with connections to points in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Several municipal and private bus lines serve various communities. A complete list of public and commercial transit systems is here.

Air:

Burlington International Airport is served by Continental, Delta, Jet Blue, Northwest, United and US Airways.

Southern Vermont Regional Airport (Rutland) is served by Cape Air.

All other airports in Vermont are General Aviation, a/k/a BYOP (Bring Your Own Plane).
