Huntington is located within the boundaries of (and is thus served by) the Cold Spring Harbor Central School District, the Harborfields Central School District, and the Huntington Union Free School District.[6] As such, children who reside within the hamlet and attend public schools go to school in one of these three districts, depending on where they reside within the hamlet.[6]



The village area is very walkable, and is served by several bus routes.[6] The 1 (part of Suffolk County Transit's route network) operates along Route 110 from Halesite to Amityville, while the H10, H20, and H30 (operated by Huntington Area Rapid Transit) serve different portions of the village.[7] The 1, H10, and H20 all provide a direct connection to the Long Island Rail Road's hub at Huntington (the station itself is actually located in the adjacent hamlet of Huntington Station).
