Pine Cobble School and Green Mountain Express Offer Vermont Bus Route

Partnership allows Vermont students safe, easy transportation to Williamstown School

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA, November 8, 2018. Pine Cobble School and Green Mountain Express have partnered to provide a free bus service to Pine Cobble students. The school is now a stop on the purple line; approximately 5-10 students ride the bus to and from school each day.

In the mornings, the bus leaves from Pleasant Street in downtown Bennington at 7:00 AM. At the end of the day, the bus leaves Pine Cobble at 3:40 PM, arriving in Bennington by 4:15 PM. While they don’t offer door-to-door service, they’ll stop anywhere along their route with advance request.

Ann Pibal, a Bennington College professor, says that her daughter has had a great experience using the bus service. “There’s always a nice group of kids who ride it, and the driver is wonderfully friendly and attentive. Typically, Pine Cobble students are the majority of the riders.”

Pibal says the hours are perfect for her family. “The bus departs school a half an hour after the day ends,” she says. “This gives our daughter just enough time to spend time with friends, or check in with her teachers, before leaving campus. In autumn, we especially enjoy meeting the bus at the Apple Barn, and have a sweet routine of picking up apples and a treat on our way home from school. Pleasant Street is a nice option too — at all times of the year.”

The school honors Vermont educational vouchers, and approximately twenty Pine Cobble students come from Vermont.

Pine Cobble School offers tremendous opportunities to students from Berkshire County and the surrounding areas. Our academic program is dynamic, engaging, and highly individualized. Powerful enrichment opportunities include a strong focus on the arts, an inclusive athletic program, and an array of extracurricular experiences.

For questions about the bus service, Vermont educational vouchers, or whether Pine Cobble School might be a good fit, please contact Nicole Goswami, director of admission and marketing. “Pine Cobble is a very different school experience,” says Goswami. “Again and again, I hear from parents and alumni that Pine Cobble isn’t simply a great school, it’s also a wonderful place to be a child.”

Pine Cobble School is a co-educational day school for children in preschool through ninth grade. For eight decades, the school has nurtured creativity, curiosity, outstanding character, and love of learning. Based in Williamstown, Massachusetts, Pine Cobble School serves students in central/northern Berkshire County, southern Vermont, and New York State.
