Five College Community-Based Learning (CBL)


Beginning in Fall 2011, the Pioneer Valley Transit Authority (PVTA) and Five Colleges, Inc. will be providing direct service to Holyoke via Amherst, South Hadley and Northampton.

In an effort to maximize local resources, recognize the importance of public transit systems, and provide increased access between local communities, the Five College Community Based Learning Committee initiated this project that will serve students and classes doing Community-Based Learning in Holyoke, and the residents of the greater Pioneer Valley.

Please download the "Guide to Community Based Learning Transportation" and the supplemental directions to your individual placement site.

**You will need a valid semester-long CBL sticker to ride buses within Holyoke for free. To obtain, please visit your campus CBL office**
