Please see www.fivecolleges.edu/bus where you will find info on the fare-free Five College bus system. Note especially the link to the PDF detailing the MHC-Smith College bus and shuttle schedule, which has changed from last year.
There are regularly scheduled buses running from Mount Holyoke to Smith every day, Monday through Friday, with many scheduled to drop students on campus 10 minutes before the start of classes and pick them up about 10 minutes after the end of classes.
Seemo Shuttles are special, 11-passenger vans that make regular express runs Monday to Friday through the 2015–2016 academic year. The fall semester service for this route starts September 8, 2015 and ends December 15, 2015. There are two stops for the Seemo Shuttle at Mount Holyoke: at Blanchard Campus Center and at the stone shelter on Route 116; and two in Northampton: at Smith College’s John M. Greene Hall and at the Northampton Post Office.
Students can also use a combination of the Bus 39 routes between Smith and Hampshire and the Bus 38 route running from UMass to Amherst, Hampshire, and Mount Holyoke.
In addition, the R29 service running down Route 116 between UMass and Holyoke may be of use to you. Please note that a fare is required for this service, which will connect you directly to the Holyoke Mall.
A fare is also required for the Tiger Trolley line which runs from the Village Commons to the Holyoke Transportation Center. Use this service to get to the South Hadley Big Y.
Fares for both the R29 and the Tiger Trolley: $1.25 each way, or a one-day pass can be purchased for $3.00.
Students can also find more information about off-campus MHC shuttles on the Auxiliary Services website.
