Break Shuttle

As a service to our students and families, Simon’s Rock provides shuttle transportation for students for vacation breaks to the following destinations:

  • Albany International Airport (Albany, NY) $50
  • Albany/Rensselaer train station (Amtrak) $50
  • Albany Bus Station (Greyhound) $50
  • Bradley International Airport (Windsor Locks, CT) $50
  • JFK Internation Airport $100 (Watch our video directions!)
  • Logan Express Bus Terminal (Framingham, MA) $75
  • Peter Pan Bus Stop - Great Barrington, MA (CVS) no charge
  • Wassaic train station (MetroNorth) $40

 The shuttle fees are billed to student accounts. Students must sign up for shuttle service in advance by completing the online shuttle request form (found for each break on the Break Shuttle Schedule). The deadline for signing up is 9:00a.m. on the Wednesday prior to the shuttle date. Students who have not reserved a space by the deadline will be responsible for arranging their own transportation or will incur a late fee of $25.  For each student, the shuttles can only accommodate one large suitcase plus carryon luggage.

Please note: Many airlines require passengers to arrive at least one full hour before plane departure. Due to variables such as weather conditions and traffic, airport arrival times are approximate. Please keep the below listed times in mind when making your travel plans:

  • Albany Airport is about one hour and 10 minutes from campus
  • Bradley Airport is about one hour and 15 minutes from campus
  • JFK Airport is about three hours from campus.
  • Logan Express bus stop is 2 hours from campus.
  • Wassaic is 50 minutes from campus.

Depending upon weather, airline departure/arrival times, cancellations and/or delays, we may occasionally alter our campus departure and airport pickup times. Students will be notified.

The Office of Transportation must be notified in the event of changes to travel plans. Please call the Campus Safety Department at 413-644-4400 if the change occurs on the day of travel or after normal business hours. Only cancellations made 48 hours prior to scheduled trips will be credited. If alternative arrangements are needed at times or destinations other than those listed on the Break Shuttle Schedule, please refer to the area taxi and bus services information to make your own arrangements. It is the student/parent/guardians’ responsibility to arrange and pay for any transportation not provided by the College, including and escort services for underage travelers.
