WFAS is located in the hamlet of Willow, 7 miles beyond downtown Woodstock. Adirondack Trailways buses (800-858-8555) leave from Port Authority in NYC and will drop you off right on the corner off the farm.
–>YOU MUST BUY A TICKET TO WILLOW IF YOU WANT TO BE LET OUT AT THE FARM.<–
You can buy bus tickets online in advance, but you must have access to a printer and while you’ll avoid all the lines, the resulting ticket will be non-refundable. Remember, you are buying a ticket to Willow, not Woodstock. The fare is about $30 each way.
There are two Trailways ticket offices in the Port Authority — one in the South Wing at street level, and one in the North Wing at the subway level. Buses generally leave from gate 34 or 36, which are at the lowest level in the South Wing. Allow extra time to purchase your ticket if departing at peak times.
Once you arrive in at the official Woodstock stop, remind the bus driver you wish to be let off at the intersection of the auto garage in Willow, a half mile past the white church. Although only 7 miles from Woodstock, because of the mountain roads it will seem a lot longer. Once you’re dropped off, the farm’s pastures are located behind the garage. The entrance is 35 Van Wagner Road, second driveway on the left.
Upon your return, you simply stand at the dropoff location and wave down the bus.
[Alternately, you can take the bus to Woodstock proper, bop around town, and take a taxi back and forth to the sanctuary! The cost for the taxi is about $15 each way. Taxis do not cruse around but can be called during the day and early evening at 845-399-3112, 845-679-6656 or 845-679-TAXI, and it’s wise to call a few hours in advance as they don’t run regularly. 24-hour service is available at 331-TAXI but it’s much more expensive.]
The schedule below is accurate as of the date indicated, but keep in mind the timetable for Willow will be about 15 minutes longer (or sooner for your return), and we recommend you double-check with the Trailways site.
