transport for 6 off train from Essex Junction into Burlington?Our group of 6 is catching the AMTRAK Vermonter to Essex Junction, arriving around 9pm. Unfortunately although the hotel I've booked for the night (Hilton) provides airport transfers, it doesn't offer pickup from the train :( They've suggested we ring a couple of cabs when we arrive. Given that we arrive on a Friday night I'm a bit doubtful about relying on the possibility of getting 2 cabs easily at that time of night (particularly as it will be winter and freezing). I could try to organise cabs in advance, but our cabs could vanish if the train is delayed for any reason. Does anyone have any better ideas (other than moving to a hotel where they might be prepared to pick us up)?

1Cab is going to be your sole option. Tell the company in advance that there will be six of you and your luggage; most taxi companies have at least one vehicle in their fleet large enough to carry all y'all. Tell them to meet the train, and tell them when it's scheduled to arrive. The cabbie will wait if it's a few minutes late. If you have a cell phone, call the taxi co. with an updated ETA about a half-hour before you arrive. If worse comes to worst, Burlington ain't huge, so you wouldn't be waiting too long if you have to call when you get there.
