Please join us at one of our informational sessions. These sessions are being set up to provide you the opportunity to ask questions regarding our new Go Card, how the new route changes could affect your planning this fall and which transportation program can help you with your travel needs. Allow us to help map out specific trips for you, whether it is for work, school or social events. FRTA staff will be on hand to assist you with information on our mobile application, how to read our schedules, where our buses will be stopping and anything else FRTA-related. Hope to see you there!

It’s a Go! The FRTA is launching its Go-Card on Monday, August 7, 2017. The launch of our new smart card will take place one month before our new routes become effective on September 5, 2017. Utilizing our new card along with route changes that include express trips to Northampton, new stops in Orange, hourly service within Greenfield and Montague, additional service to GCC, less wait time and system wide improvements will enhance the passenger experience. A Go-Card is the smart new way to ride the bus. It is easy to use, inexpensive and holds unlimited trips within the FRTA fixed route system for 31 consecutive days. Once it is purchased for $30, it will have 31-consecutive days of travel time on it and will also act as your transfer. You can also store value on our Go-Cards if you don’t have the need for the 31 day option, it is reusable and reloadable. Each time you ride an FRTA bus, you simply tap your Go-Card on the farebox and ride! Go-Cards can be purchased at the JWO Transit Center. Reduced $15 Go-Cards are available to those who qualify.

All FRTA schedules for our approved service changes starting in September have been finalized!

Please see the attached summary and route timetables for all services starting on September 5th, 2017. Thank you to everyone who participated in the Community Conversation process, these changes were created with our entire community in mind.

Please look them over and contact FTM at 413.773.8090 x102 with any questions you might have or if you are in need of assistance in mapping out certain trips. 

Before September 5th, we will be hosting public information sessions around our region within the coming months so that everyone will be informed about our upcoming changes.

Please stay tuned for more information
