Accessing the Appalachian Trail: A List of Shuttles and Taxi Services

Originally published on 6/23/2016, updated on 11/23/2020 by Sarah Wolfson.

Do a quick Google search of, “How do I get to on the AT?” and you won’t get very far. A few posts may have been made 5 or so years ago on WhiteBlaze.net if you’re searching for one of the big trail towns (Damascus, Monson, Duncannon), but search for easy access to any of the smaller towns (Waynesboro, VA; Kent, CT; Dalton, MA; for example) and you’re pretty much SOL.

But fear not! I have done your research for you! Admittedly, accessing lots of these trail towns will still be an adventure (calling trail angels, hitching rides, finding the bus depot…), but at least most of that information is now in one place. This list is primarily for those of you trying to get from a town to an airport, or vice versa. Hikers going from the trail to a town just need to jump on the ol’ thumb train – it’s a trail tradition.

I’ve split the trail up into sections and pulled information from Awol’s A.T. Guide and the Thru-Hikers’ Companion. I also used WhiteBlaze.net, but more detailed searches are also a good idea. Information found in AWOL’s guide is labeled with (AWOL), info from the Thru-Hikers’ Companion is labeled with (Companion), and from WhiteBlaze.net will have (WhiteBlaze).
Listings have been updated as shuttle services reach out.

To Springer Mountain

Some of the following can pick you up from downtown Atlanta or the airport to the trailhead. Otherwise, from Atlanta, take the MARTA local rail system to North Springs Station. From there, one of the following can shuttle you to springer mountain:

All in all, accessing the AT isn’t the easiest task in the world. But that’s the point, right?

Check WhiteBlaze.net, various Appalachian Trail related groups on Facebook, and phone some of these contacts to see if anyone has any other leads on how to get to whichever town you’re interested in. The AT community is first and foremost helpful. Good luck with your travels and happy trails!

    Dave Ackerson also covers Williamstown, MA. It’s only 5 miles from North Adams. I notice you didn’t reference ATC’s shuttle page at: https://www.appalachiantrail.org/docs/default-source/default-document-library/at-shuttlesf3b2de6668ce6efcb07bff000057c13a.pdf?sfvrsn=0

    White Blaze just updated their list recently which is a hybrid of the ATC list, which is updated regularly, probably more regularly than this listing. For instance, the ATC list has several more folks listed in the Rutland/Killington, VT area so it’s good to check all the lists. Kudos to trying to combine them.

    PS: There are actually lots of folks in the network between Kent and Dalton that you can access by calling someone on the ATC list… just saying. Not everyone wants to be on the lists, so sometimes it takes calling someone who knows someone… =) Be resourceful!

    Don’t forget The Farmhouse in Rangeley, Maine! Affiliated with the Stratton Motel in Stratton, Maine, they can shuttle basically anywhere, including all locations listed under the Stratton Motel. Also, they and the Stratton Motel can shuttle to any trailhead primarily between Andover and Caratunk, Maine, and so can slack pack hikers as well. I’ve been doing work for stay between The Farmhouse and Stratton Motel since last season, so if anyone has questions I’d be more than happy to help.

      Hi there! Do you think my friends and I could get a shuttle from Stratton to Farmington? We are trying to figure out how to get off trail to a rental car place in Farmington!
      Any advice is appreciated!
      Best,

    In the Hamburg, PA area: Rainbow Alpaca Shuttle Service 484.560.7813

    We offer slack packing, cheap shuttles ($5 per person into Hamburg), trail reports, hospital runs, pizza deliveries, brewery tours, wine tastings, and pretty much anything else hikers can think to do in the area. We operate between 501 and 309 regularly, but with enough notice, we can go pretty much wherever you need to go.

    This is still not really in the easiest format. A spreadsheet or something more searchable is better. I’ve been on the ATC list (may it RIP) and White Blaze for like 8 years and I’m not on this list. Just sayin’. Lists and calendars are hard to compile.

    Hi –
    Just wondering if this information is updated regularly. I see the list was originally posted in 2016, so am just wondering if I should be using this as up to date information (:

    Thanks!
