Student Transportation

We’ll get you where you need to go

Downtown Great Barrington is not far from campus — a moderate walk or bike ride, or a short drive. You can always hop a ride into town on a Simon’s Rock shuttle, or call for a regional bus to come pick you up. The Berkshire Regional Transit Authority (BRTA) bus makes hourly loops around Great Barrington and will make stops at Simon’s Rock when requested via the 800 number listed below. We’ll also work with you to be sure you get to your local internship, worship service, or volunteer activities.

Students are not permitted to have cars on campus in their first year. After that, all vehicles must be registered and all drivers are subject to state and campus regulations.

Getting Around
