The MTA experimented with such a bus, on weekends only, but there has been no bus service to Wassaic in recent years. A Great Barrington resident, Chip Elitzer, has been trying to see if we can get a bus service established that would meet all or most trains arriving/departing Wassaic, and make express stops along Rte. 7 in the Berkshires. He wrote about this in the Berkshire Edge (click to read the article) in 2017. Elitzer’s financial model, he said, demonstrated a possible break-even scenario that wouldn’t require a public subsidy, but to date there have been no further developments.
Is there a bus to the Wassaic Metro-North station?
