Loop Bus Pickup/Dropoff Changes
Due to the various campus construction projects and to maximize rider’s safety, some pickup and drop off locations for the loop bus have been changed. The south campus stops at the Farm Lot and Field Road locations have been removed for the duration of the Multipurpose Arena construction. The new south campus pick up location will be at the bus shelter on Beaver street just past the pedestrian bridge. Same location as the south campus pick up for the Harvard bus.
The Rauch stop is planned to be moved to inside the Falcone Apartments circle.
In the event of inclement weather, please check our Shuttle GPS. For immediate dispatch concerns riders should call 781-535-6344, Extension #2. For general shuttle questions riders should call 781-891-2685.
University Police should not be called for any bus inquiries unless an emergency occurs.
