Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, CT, is the closest airport. It is located one hour south of Deerfield and provides shuttle service to Deerfield. The John V. Olver Transit Center in Greenfield, MA, just ten minutes away from Deerfield, provides train service and workshop staff will provide rides from and to it. Uber/Lyft services are available, but because Deerfield is in a rural area, the local bus company does not stop in the village. Renting a car at the airport is another option.
