FRTA will no longer provide services for the Town of Athol. Athol and its residents voted to have Montachusett Regional Transit Authority (MART) to provide transportation to their town. This means that all services provided by the FRTA will now be provided by MART.
For Route 32 passengers, FRTA will travel as far as Hannaford's in Orange. The times on our schedule will remain the same. Once at Hannaford's, MART will meet our bus and provide the rest of your trip into Athol. A transfer will be given to you so that you will be able to make the connection from the FRTA bus onto the MART bus, however, there is a difference in the timing for getting into Athol. Please call MART at 1-800-922-5636, ext. 2274 with any scheduling issues. Any other questions may be directed to the Town of Athol at 1-978-249-4551.
