UVM Health Network-CVMC and GMT Continue Partnership to Provide Important Transportation Services to Washington County Residents

Vermont | July 15, 2016 – UVM Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC) and Green Mountain Transit (GMT) have agreed to continue providing valuable transportation service to residents in Washington County. The 6 month contract extension allows GMT to continue the CVMC Health Shuttle service through February 10, 2017. The Shuttle runs 6 hours per day, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. Passengers are required to call 24 hours in advance to schedule trips.

This service is open to the general public and serves the greater Barre City and Barre town areas including Graniteville, East Barre, South Barre, and Websterville, as well as Williamstown and Montpelier. Additional service to the Health and Wellness Clinic in Barre was added at CVMC’s request.

This is a free shuttle thanks to the generosity of CVMC who has agreed to pay 100% of the cost.

“Whenever we conduct a community needs assessment, transportation is one of the top concerns. If we can partner with an organization like GMT, which has the infrastructure we need, we can help fill this gap,” said Dave Turner, UVM Health Network – CVMC Vice President of Physician Services. “If there are barriers, we want to remove them for patients. We really want to be able to provide for the whole person and all of their health needs.”

“GMT is grateful to CVMC for giving our organization the ability to continue this service.  Nationwide funding public transportation has become increasingly more challenging. This partnership with UVM Health Network – CVMC epitomizes the types of relationships GMT is actively pursuing in the communities we serve.  Without CVMC’s generosity, this vital service would not be possible.” Karen Walton, General Manager, GMT.
