Green Mountain Transit offers the Montpelier LINK Express to the Richmond Park and Ride where we pick up and drop off Corps Members daily. This bus is only available during the weekdays. If your Crew Member will be taking public transportation, please communicate this to our staff, so we can properly coordinate a ride to the West Monitor Barn.
