The Island Line Bike Ferry is Vermont's only bike ferry service, and arguably one of the most scenic in the world, bringing cyclists and pedestrians across "the Cut", a 200-foot gap, on the beautiful Colchester Causeway. Sit back and relax for the 5 minute journey. No matter where you are coming from, north or south on the Island Line Trail, great biking and good food awaits you.

WINOOSKI RIVER BIKE FERRY :: 1998 - 2003
Local Motion's first bike ferry ran across the mouth of the Winooski River between Delta Park in Colchester and the Auer Family Boat House in Burlington. It all started when Brian Costello stopped Chapin Spencer on Burlington's College Street in 1997. Brian told Chapin of his vision to connect the Colchester Causeway Park with the Burlington Bike Path. Brian donated a motor and Chapin donated a boat. Charlie and Christine at Auer's Boat House agreed to host the ferry service. Governor Dean and community leader Bill Hauke were a couple of our first passengers in 1998.
