Shuttle & Bus – from the train to where you want to go!

There are a few ways to travel, reach the station, and depart from it!

Public Buses

Berkshire Regional Transit Authority provides public bus services throughout the Berkshires. Contact the BRTA at (413) 499-2782 for routes, schedules, and more information.

Taxi and ride services

It’s recommended to pre-book a taxi to ensure availability upon train arrival.

Uber & Lyft

It’s important to note that Lyft and Uber services are not widely available in Pittsfield and throughout the Berkshires. Unless you have made prior arrangements directly with a driver, refrain from relying on these services to reach your final destination or return to the train station.

My goal is to keep these as updated as possible.
