IF YOU ARE LIVING WITH A DISABILITY IN HAWLEY, and have reason to travel back and forth to Greenfield and vicinity from time to time, then the FRTA has an opportunity you might find interesting. FRTA is the Franklin Regional Transit Authority, a state-supported public transportation agency that runs regular bus/van routes fanning out from the Olver Transport Center in Greenfield to:
|♦ Amherst||♦ GCC|
|♦ Charlemont||♦ Montague|
|♦ Corporate Center||♦ Northampton|
|♦ Greenfield Proper||♦ Orange|
All fixed-route FRTA buses and vans are disability-equipped, and their drivers are specially-trained, to make sure that all bus stops are made, and all points of ingress and egress are managed, with safety, comfort and courtesy.
FRTA is currently searching for someone with a disability from Hawley who could join their Board of Advisors. The purpose? To provide the feedback that will help FRTA’s services improve.
