The Hack Service was the means of transportation to Concord before the coming of the automobile. In 1889, the school catalog stated that "a regular line of hacks had been placed on the road from Hinton to Concord by Mr. J.E. Meadows, one of these hacks will leave Hinton, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning". Later catalogs described hack services operated by Captain William Holroyd, Mr. H.B. Sweeney and Mr. C.D. Dardun, to Hinton and to Oakvale. This picture shows a hack operated by Mr. Wiley J. Compton, about 1910.
A street car line was planned to connect Athens and Princeton, but was never finished. The right-of-way was later used for a state highway. A modern bus service later connected Athens and Princeton for a number of years, pictured below.
