Park and Ride (or Kiss and Ride)

Northampton offers two conveniently located park and ride lots to make your morning commute faster and more sustainable. Both lots are multi-use and serve neighboring towns and university students while cutting down on local traffic and carbon emissions.

Sheldon Field: The 81 space lot at Sheldon Field Recreation Area (Bridge St/Route 9 at Ferry St) connects to PVTA express and local buses to Hadley, Amherst and UMass.  It offers bike racks, bike lockers, a bus shelter, and commuter bus services. It also provides parking for the recreation area, which has a peak parking demand different than the park and ride lot, allowing the lot to serve multiple uses.

VA Medical Center:  The 60 space space lot in Leeds at the VA Medical Center  offers access to commuter bus services and convenient proximity to the Mass Central bike path.
