Participants who wish to make their own bus transportation arrangements are welcome to do so. Please investigate which companies service South Hadley, MA, and on which days of the week. The companies and frequency of service change almost from year to year, and we are therefore unable to print any information at present time due to the strong possibility that it might change by the time ARIA sessions begin. The bus stop in South Hadley is within a short walking distance to the campus of Mount Holyoke College. For the past few years the Peter Pan bus company has provided service to South Hadley, MA.

The closest train stations are in Holyoke, MA and Springfield, MA.
