Springfield is located in the west of New England, within Hampden County, Massachusetts, USA. We are delighted to have this city on our app to give commuters and tourists a smooth trip on public transit.
Springfield is most renowned as the birthplace of basketball, often nicknamed “Hoop City”. Legend has it that teacher, James Naismith invented the sport to fill the gaps between football and baseball seasons. Basketball enthusiasts — learn all about the history at the Basketball Hall of Fame.
It was also home to beloved children’s author and illustrator, Theodore Geisel, Dr. Seuss. The Zoo in Forest Park is said to have inspired Dr. Seuss’s out of the box stories. All around the city, find tributes to this revered US author, particularly the Dr. Seuess National Memorial Sculpture Garden (look out for the Cat in the Hat and Yertle the Turtle statues).
