We’re looking for volunteers to help with the following activities.


Be a Train Greeter

We’re looking for people who from time to time can stop by a Valley Flyer station (Greenfield, Holyoke, or Northampton) and “meet the train.” (in particular the Valley Flyer)

What we’re trying to do is

– Greet the passengers waiting on the platform for the train and answer any questions that they may have.

– Collect some ridership data (total on and offs)

Is this your first trip on the Valley Flyer?

If you’ don’t mind me asking, where are you going today?


If you’d only prefer to simply count the on/offs that’s fine too.


We’re collecting this basic data so that we have an idea how many people are riding the trains and why they’re riding.

We’ve been doing this for a while now with a few people and now we’d like to expand it so that we can hopefully cover more of the trains.


So what do you get out of doing this? The satisfaction that you’re helping to make the service a success. We also intend to share the data that we collect so you and others can see it.


If you’re interested or have questions please drop us a at trainsinthevalley@gmail.com

We look forward to hearing from people interested helping with this effort, even if its only from time to time.
