Whether you’re looking for a night on the town in Burlington, hoping to catch a movie in Morrisville or needing a ride to the airport or bus station to get home for break, here are some ways you can get around while you’re at JSC.
Car: All residential students, including first-year students, may have a car on campus. Students must abide by established regulations and purchase a yearly parking permit.
Badger Bullet: JSC’s biodiesel minibus, affectionately called the Badger Bullet, transports students to and from Burlington on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during the school year. The bus is free for JSC students (ID required), with seating on a first-come, first-served basis.
Morrisville Shuttle: On weekdays when classes are in session, JSC provides free shuttle service to Morrisville in the afternoons. Regular round-trip service is available three times a day starting at 12:30 p.m. from campus. In addition, the JSC Wellness Center arranges free transportation for students who have appointments at Morrisville Family Health Care outside of these hours, provided the appointments have been scheduled through the Wellness Center.
Break Shuttle: When college breaks roll around, JSC provides free shuttle service to and from the Amtrak train station in Essex Junction and the bus station/airport in Burlington.

Return trips are also offered on the Sunday prior to the first day of classes after breaks. The shuttle picks up at the Burlington Airport at 7:30 p.m. and the Essex Train Station at 8:30 p.m. on:
- Sunday, October 11

You must reserve your spot in advance, so be on the lookout for an email (to your JSC email address) notification when it’s time to sign up!
Rideshare: Many students use our online classifieds board, The Badger Board (located on the MyJSC Portal ) to find and arrange rides, whether for a short distance, a daily commute or a trip home for break.
Rural Transit Buses & Cabs: Daily buses are available to take riders into Burlington or Montpelier from the nearby towns of Jeffersonville and Morrisville. There are a number of cab companies in the area as well.
