Transportation

Daily Shuttle to Holyoke

There will be a daily shuttle to the town of Holyoke Monday through Thursday, departing from the admissions building promptly at 2:41 p.m.  Please see Transportation to Holyoke for more information.



Transportation
Community Partnerships for Social Change (CPSC) and the Community Engagement and Collaborative Learning (CECL) Network coordinate two vans to make off-campus internships, work-study jobs, and partnership projects more accessible to students, particularly to areas where there is little or no public transportation. Though students placed through CPSC are the priority, the vans can also be used by other members of the Hampshire community if there are available times. Each van has space for 7 passengers plus 1 driver.

There are multiple ways you can reserve a van, but please see the options listed below to determine which reservation works for you. Keep in mind that any student, staff, or faculty member must be a trained defensive driver in order to drive any Hampshire vehicle.
