BRTA Running Evening Bus Service in Pittsfield
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A pilot program for a late-evening bus in Pittsfield started two weeks ago will run through May and help regional transportation officials determine if the service will continue.
The Berkshire Regional Transit Authority began the limited service on Tuesday, Jan. 22. The initial route selected for the later evening bus service is the 11 N-BCC Night Loop that will run weekdays until Friday, May 24.
Using the data collected from customers, operators, riders, and surveys, BRTA will enhance this service next week by adding Berkshire Crossing to the route. The hours of service will remain the same and will travel:
- From the Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC), 1 Columbus Ave., to Berkshire Community College on West Street;
- Back to the ITC;
- Along East Street to Stop & Shop on Merrill Road;
- To Walmart at Berkshire Crossing;
- to Allendale Plaza; and
- Returning to the ITC via Tyler Street.
This enhanced schedule will begin on Monday, Feb. 11.
Service by request to BMC Hillcrest Campus (outbound only) and Taconic High School will be available. To schedule this demand service, call 413-499-2782, Option 1.
