July 7, 2017–(Becket, MA) Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Becket, Massachusetts recently launched the Pittsfield-Pillow Express, a Saturday bus service connecting Jacob’s Pillow and three Pittsfield neighborhoods. This free bus service is open to all and is specifically aimed at helping families, community groups, and individuals without independent transportation access the Pillow’s many free and low-cost events and programs. The service kicked off June 24, and runs through Saturday August 26, 2017.
“Jacob’s Pillow is just 20 miles from Pittsfield, but without public transportation to Becket, so many community members have never experienced the magic of the Pillow or had the opportunity to take advantage of our hundreds of free offerings,” said Pamela Tatge, Director of Jacob’s Pillow. “We knew that we had to address this challenge, and a key part of our new Vision ‘22 strategic plan focuses on deepening our civic and community engagement. A generous member of the Pillow’s Board of Trustees stepped up to help fund this initiative and we are thrilled to launch this service during our 85th Anniversary Season.”
