Headline: All Free, All the Time
Thanks to an innovative partnership in the Upper Valley, rides on all Advance Transit bus routes in Vermont and New Hampshire are free.
      Commuters, shoppers, and anyone else who wants to ride can board Advance Transit buses without paying a fare. System-wide free service has been made possible by special increased contributions from Upper Valley towns, Dartmouth College, and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
     AT Executive Director Van Chesnut said the free service is part of a broader effort to decrease traffic congestion in the region. "The College and the Medical Center are taking a lead in this effort in hopes that others will realize the benefits of encouraging people to take the bus instead of driving alone."

"The bus drivers are always cheerful, polite, and helpful. It's fantastic that it's free."


"I really enjoy riding the bus even though I have a car available. Keep up the great work! "

"I very much appreciate the service. It is convenient, environmentally right, and economically important in these trying times."
-Grafton resident


The drivers are very helpful with new people, almost like ambassadors for the town & college. I think it's one of the best things about living here."

-Norwich resident


"Everyone is treated respectfully."
-West Lebanon resident
