Summer Place offers bus transportation on two separate routes, with a total of eight stops at convenient locations throughout Greater Hartford. We also provide door-to-door bus service on three separate routes to West Hartford residents. Every effort is made to ensure a safe ride and to minimize the amount of time spent on the bus. Summer Place counselors supervise the campers on each bus. Please note that afternoon bus service is not available to those enrolled in the early dismissal option.
