The resulting strategic plan represents the culmination of data gathered and reflects realistic goals and strategies as identified by those closely associated with the work of CATMA.

History of CATMA

In 1992, Champlain College, University of Vermont Medical Center and the University of Vermont agreed to share resources as well as jointly plan, develop, and manage all transportation and parking programs, infrastructure, and associated facilities, through the formation of the Campus Area Transportation Management Association (CATMA). This joint planning yielded coordinated land use planning conforming to the Municipal Development Plans for the cities of Burlington and South Burlington and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission’s ECOS Plan.

While “The Hill” institutions have been collaborating to reduce traffic, parking issues, and emissions since 1992 through their investment and commitment to CATMA and TDM, Chittenden County has experienced steady growth. The increase in population brings traffic congestion, degradation of air quality, and constant need for land use planning that incorporates the ideals of “smart growth.” CATMA’s successful business model and leadership is now offered county-wide and our name has changed to Chittenden Area Transportation Management Association (still CATMA).
