We’re far enough from a major city to feel the wind across the open ridges, but close enough for an easy weekend getaway. Looking for transportation or directions? We may be more accessible than you think.
- Local trains run close to our borders, including inexpensive off-peak MTA fares from Wassaic to New York City. Amtrak links Albany to New York (try the Hudson train station) and Boston to Pittsfield. The Vermont Shires Connector runs between Bennington and the Albany station.
- Public transportation is expanding even on the back roads. We’ve got Zipcar and Lyft in town as well as local cab and limo services (including rides to New York airports) and a regular BRTA bus between Williamstown and North Adams and points south.
- Options by air include the Albany airport, an hour’s drive from Williamstown. Hartford is an easy 2 hours southeast.
Vans and limos run 24 hours, daily, year-round even in rough weather. They will meet trains, flight arrivals, ferries and departures, and they offer tours of the Berkshires.
