Vermont Moover & Public Bus Transportation
Travel the Deerfield (Mt. Snow/Haystack) Valley in a Holstein-themed bus. MOOver is the Mount Snow Region’s unique people mover. It was February of 1996 when a small group of volunteers gathered to discuss the transportation needs of the Deerfield Valley in southern Vermont – an area famous for skiing at Mt. Snow and Haystack Ski Areas, as well as other forms of outdoor recreation.
The consensus was that Wilmington and Dover could benefit from some form of public transportation. The volunteers, who were representative of residents, business owners and government officials of both towns, became the Deerfield Valley Transit Committee and eventually the Deerfield Valley Transit Association. (DVTA)
The solution to the public transportation needs of the Mt. Snow area emerged as “The Moover”, a free public bus system with a Holstein motif. It’s hard to miss “the Moover” if you’re on the way to Mount Snow or on Vermont’s busy Rt. 9. The free service runs from Wilmington to Mt. Snow daily. When visiting the area, leave the hassle of driving behind and experience this creative way to travel.
This valuable free service is an excellent example of cooperation of residents and local businesses working together to implement a creative solution to the Mt. Snow area’s public transportation needs. The hard (often thankless ) work of volunteers often goes unnoticed so we would like to publicly thank everyone who contributed to this fine effort including the current DVTA board members.
When you’re traveling Route 100 near Mt. Snow or Haystack watch for the bus that mooves, the free people mover, operated as a public service by the Deerfield Valley Transportation Association. For schedule information call the DVTA at 802.464-8487.
Remember, there is no charge for riding the MOOver! Look for the MOOver Bus stop signs for bus stop locations. The bus departs from the Deerfield Valley Health Center and travels from Wilmington to Dover and back (Routes 9 & 100) daily.
