The post office is one of the many bus stops for the ‘5 colleges’ buses that run into Northampton proper and out across the river to UMass and the outlying schools including Hampshire College, Mt. Holyoke, and Amherst College. Buses run regularly during the school year, well into the evening hours. We are only a 20 minute walk down Main Street from Smith College.
