Roads, Rail, Air
Infrastructure in Rutland County is fundamentally sound. The Rutland region is served by a network of roads, freight and passenger rail service, and our own airport with daily flights to Boston. In addition, we have a strong telecommunications network with additional significant investments being made in fiber optics and Rutland County is home to Vermont’s largest non-urban public transportation system.
The Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport is one of only two airports in the state that provides daily commercial service. With daily flights serviced by Cape Air to and from Boston, flying in and out of Rutland County is as easy…and more practical than you might think.
The airport also is a resource for the many private planes that come and go on a daily basis to support area businesses, residents, and visitors.
The airport is less than 30 minutes from central and southern Vermont locations such as Manchester, Brandon, Castleton, Killington, and Okemo.
Rutland County businesses can take advantage of the fact that Vermont’s rail corridor runs right through the county. This helps transport goods across the state and across the country.
In addition, Amtrak provides transportation for recreational and business travelers alike. With the train station conveniently located in downtown Rutland, the Amtrak Ethan Allen Express train can make your trip between Rutland and New York City a relaxing and enjoyable ride.
