    The station is for both bus & train, and it is definitely not close to any access of the trail (be it the Pittsfield Road crossing, where it runs through Dalton or through Cheshire), as all of those...

    You could take Amtrak from Pittsfield to Rensselaer/Albany NY, and then south to NYC. However, it is probably not the easiest to do, as the Albany to Boston train is limited (may still be only once...

    Of course people would put trash in there as well, since that could also attract the bear. Then take it along the next day when they leave. If they don't, that is their issue (just like any other...

    One would hope people would know that that area is never nearly as warm as most places, even in the summer.

    Aside from he himself having some food that he shouldn't have, it sounds like the rest was due to trash left by others. While Scouts do (or should) try to clean up what others failed to do, they...

    You could probably make those on your own with a piece of white label or paper and a black marker. They seem pretty simple (based on the other post with a link to them).

    It says $5 per rider for the round trip, so one would expect that is what is paying for it, vs. a parking fee (which makes sense, since some might park there and not need or want to use a shuttle)?

    Umm... if it was sold then it didn't "bite the dust" - it will still be in existence. Not like a company just closing up totally.
