Transportation Working Group Update

Bentley University is in the process of completing a comprehensive transportation study for the campus. This study was managed by a multi-stakeholder Transportation Working Group of faculty, staff and students who hired a team of external transportation experts to assess all forms of transportation available to the Bentley community. As part of this process, the transportation experts were asked to evaluate the university’s current shuttle system. The Transportation Working Group held two information sessions in early April to present the university’s two new transportation options: The Waverley Express and B Line. If you would like the information from these session, please refer to the Bentley University New Transportation Options presentation and the Frequently Asked Questions.
