Transportation options to/from campus for students housed at the Econo Lodge in Hadley are outlined below.
Transit Shuttle Vans

The PVTA B43 runs to/from campus on weekdays and weekends (use the regular B43, not the B43E, which is an express that does not service stops in Hadley).
When traveling towards the Econo Lodge, we recommend that passengers disembark from the bus at Mountain Farms (West) or Home Depot & Chipotle (since there is not a crosswalk at Route 9 directly across from the Econo Lodge).
