Transportation

Western Massachusetts is strategically located between Boston (75 minutes) and New York (2-1/2 hours). Several other major markets are located within a 4-hour drive of western Massachusetts, including Providence, R.I.; Manchester, N.H.; Portland, Maine; Burlington, Vt.; Albany, N.Y.; and Philadelphia.

The region's two major highway systems, I-90 and I-91, serve as the main corridors to all the major markets and a network of 1,255 miles of roadway make your travels easy. Bradley International Airport, a mere 11 miles from Springfield, provides a global gateway, and the region is also served by several state-owned airports, including T.F. Green Airport in Warwick, R.I. and Albany International Airport, Albany N.Y.

Residents and visitors alike can travel easily across New England on the Amtrak rail system or on Peter Pan Bus Lines, headquartered in Springfield, which operates 400 buses to over 100 cities in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic states. As well, the largest railroad in the eastern United States serves our commercial markets.
