  • COVID-19 Social Distancing Bus Capacities 
    • Big Bus: 16 passengers 
    • Small Buses: 9 passengers 
  • No boarding of buses if you have COVID19 symptoms or been in close contact with any person who is known or suspected to be COVID19 positive within the past 14 days. 
  • Passengers must have followed the State of Vermont cross state travel requirements before boarding a GMT bus.
  • GMT-MRV route schedules can be found under the Mad River Valley tab at https://ridegmt.com/gmt-schedules/
  • The Transit App, a real time bus locator and trip planning tool, will be available again this year. Information about the Transit App can be found at https://ridegmt.com/wheres-my-bus/. Along with links to the app in the Apple and Google Play store. (If you plan to ride the bus, you need this app!)

Route Changes: 

  • The Valley Evening Service (Saturday nights, NYE and select Sunday nights) will NOT be operating this winter. 
  • There will be no bus service on Rt 17 this winter. 
  • The Valley Floor, Mt Ellen, Mt Condo, and Access Road route schedules are effectively the same as last winter.
