The Connecticut Valley Electric Transit Route was a trolley line that operated in the early 20th century, specifically from 1905 to 1926, in the Connecticut River Valley region of Massachusetts. The line was a part of the Springfield Street Railway Company, which was one of the largest electric streetcar systems in the United States at the time.

The Connecticut Valley Electric Transit Route ran from Springfield to Holyoke, Northampton, and Amherst, and it was an important transportation link for people living in those areas. The trolley line connected these towns and allowed for easy travel between them, which was especially important for college students attending schools in the region, such as Amherst College and Smith College.

Mount Tom is a mountain located in Holyoke, Massachusetts, in the Connecticut River Valley region. The mountain has an elevation of 1,202 feet (366 meters) and offers sweeping views of the surrounding area. In the early 20th century, Mount Tom was a popular tourist destination, and it was a common stop on the Connecticut Valley Electric Transit Route. The trolley line had a station at the base of the mountain, and visitors could take a funicular railway up Mount Tom. Once at the top of Mount Tom, visitors could enjoy a range of activities, including hiking, picnicking, and even a zoo. The mountain was also home to a popular amusement park, which featured a roller coaster, a Ferris wheel, and other rides and attractions.
