Students driving to campus should register and obtain parking privileges from CCV. Parking privileges cost $50 per semester and allow students to park in the Winooski City Parking Garage. The garage is located one block from the CCV building and provides covered parking, that is monitored and secured by the City of Winooski. We suggest students travel to and from the garage in groups and via well-lit avenues (East Allen Street and Winooski Falls Way). CCV can provide an escort to the garage for those who request it.
Street parking is limited to two hours. As most courses are nearly three hours long, students can be ticketed for utilizing street parking for the duration of their class period. The City of Winooski strictly enforces street parking.
You can park in the public portion of the parking garage (first level) and pay as you go. Please note, if you arrive before 5 pm and plan to stay until after 5 pm, you cannot pay for parking all at once. You can pay for time up to 5 pm and will either have to return to the garage to pay for time after 5 pm, or pay via the parking app on your smartphone.
The $50 fee for obtaining parking privileges is nonrefundable. Once a student has registered for parking privileges online, the fee is added to the student account. Parking privileges are provided only when the fee has been paid. Students using financial aid to pay for their parking privileges receive privileges 1 business day after aid coverage is confirmed.
Parking privileges begin 1 business day after payment is received or one week before classes begin if paid for prior to that time. Privileges end the last day of class for the semester. Students must reapply & pay for additional semesters.

The CCV parking lot located off East Allen Street is reserved for instructors with valid permits only. Those violating this rule will be subject to ticketing and towing.

GMTA provides two bus routes to serve Winooski. Both routes run to our front door(*) and include frequent trips through the day and evening. The Essex Junction route (#2) runs every 15 to 30 minutes between Winooski and Fletcher Allen Healthcare and Cherry Street terminal in Burlington. The Winooski/Riverside route (#9) runs hourly during the day between Winooski and Cherry Street via the Old North End of Burlington. CCV will sell 10-ride tickets to students, faculty, and staff at $10 per 10-ride ticket. (Note: There is a 10 ticket limit per semester) This is more than 16% off the CCTA published price. Bus tickets are sold at CCV in Winooski and are limited based on the number of Winooski credits in which you enroll. CCTA bus route information may be obtained at www.cctaride.org.
*During construction bus stops are located on East-Allen street (#2) and lower Abenaki Way (#9) before the stop sign.
As part of our LEED accreditation goals, CCV installed 28 conventional bike parking rack spaces and nine vertical mount spaces for our constituent needs. The bike racks are located at the south end of the facility (off Abenaki Way), under the carport, so they are protected from inclement weather. Please do not chain bikes to trees, handrails, or objects other than bike racks.
Through a federal grant, the regional transportation partners (CATMA, GMTA, CCRPC, LocalMotion, CarShare Vt, GoVermont and a few others) developed a website resource called Go! Chittenden County. The website has transportation resources for individuals and businesses.
