During the week of February 13, Green Mountain Transit will be collecting items at our new Downtown Transit Center and administrative offices in Burlington, Berlin, and St. Albans to donate to Canal Street Veterans Housing.
Canal Street Veterans Housing is an innovative approach to veterans’ assistance that COTS hopes will serve as a national example – creative housing, not shelter, for formerly homeless veterans. The program provides veterans with time to transition back into the community, allowing participants to stay up to 24 months with their families.
GMT is excited to further our mission of positively enhancing the quality of life for the communities we serve. On Friday, February 17, 2017, for every bus pass sold at the Downtown Transit Center, GMT will make an equivalent donation to Canal Street Veterans Housing. GMT will offer a free round-trip on local buses (must have passes from the ticket booth) to passengers who donate an item.
