Getting around Vermont and getting to Burlington:
It can be a little difficult for international students since many do not have an American
license or a car of their own. Public transportation is available at select times. Addison
County Transit Resources (ACTR) run shuttles during the week and on Saturday to Burlington
as well as other towns around Middlebury. Refer to www.actr-vt.org/bus_schedules/index.php for the latest updated bus schedules from Middlebury.
Middlebury Transit (www.middleburytransit.com, (802)-388-3838) and Jessica’s Vital Transit
(www.jvt.us, (802)-349-8833) are two private companies that offer taxi service from Middlebury
to Burlington. Students take advantage of these companies especially during breaks and at the
beginning and end of semesters when they are traveling. Rides can be cheap depending on the number
of people who share your cab.
The town of Middlebury is well equipped to deal with the needs of Middlebury College students
as they set up their new life. Ben Franklin’s on Main Street carries the essentials whereas
Shaw’s Supermarket a little further is a larger departmental grocery store. There are also a number
of local businesses and restaurants within walking distance that serve multiple purposes. Many
students visit Burlington during their first few weeks and purchase their winter clothing and other
such items from the larger malls on Church Street.
The National Bank of Middlebury in town (www.nationalbankmiddlebury.com) offers checking accounts
for Middlebury College Students. They usually come to campus during Orientation week to help students
setup their accounts. They have two ATM machines on campus for withdrawing money—in the Main Library
and in McCullough Student Center.
