How is this funded?
The funding to operate these vehicles comes from several sources including a grant from the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), billable and contracted services (e.g. Medicaid), rider donations, United Way of Northwest Vermont, and our general fund raising. There is no set charge for riding on one of these vehicles, however donations are always gratefully accepted and encouraged.
