Providing You with Convenient Options

At the Parking and Transportation Office, we focus on helping the MIT community get to, from, and around campus. And we strongly encourage you to explore environmentally friendly commuter programs. Why waste time and money sitting in traffic? We offer many other options for customizing your commute.

Visit your Commuting Benefits page on Atlas to apply for one of our commuter subsidy or reimbursement programs.


Bicycling Bicycling
You don’t need to own a bicycle to ride around campus now. Current MIT employees and students can buy an annual subsidized Hubway membership. Signup or renew your membership today. An MIT certificate is required.


By sharing a ride, you save money on gas and car maintenance. Plus, you can carpool and save by participating in the discounted carpool parking program. Be sure to check in with your department’s Parking Coordinators first.


Emergency Ride HomeEmergency Ride Home
This unique program provides an employee with a taxi home if there’s a personal or family emergency or if you had to work unscheduled overtime. Only MIT employees who use public transportation, carpool, vanpool, bike, or walk to work at least three days per week may use the program.


Massachusetts has a broad transit system composed of buses and trains that pass through campus. MIT encourages travel by public transit by subsidizing 50% of the cost of a monthly MBTA pass for students and employees. You can combine it with an occasional parking permit.


Full- or part-time MIT employees and students can request a campus parking permit via the online parking permit system. Limited parking is available for alumni and affiliates. View the parking pages for details on a variety of permit options.


Private TransitPrivate Transit
Employees who use an alternative form of transit, like a private bus line or Amtrak for example, may participate in the Private Transit Subsidy program. Sign up and get reimbursed for up to 50% of your commuting costs.


Free shuttle service is available to the MIT community. Travel around campus during the day and night; or to the Back Bay and North Station. Shuttles to Logan airport and local grocery stores are available at certain times during the school year.


MIT employees are eligible to participate in the MIT vanpool subsidy program with vRide which provides both a monthly subsidy and a pre-tax payroll deduction. The vanpool subsidy cannot be combined with any other subsidies.


Make walking a part of your commute and see the proven health benefits. If you take public transportation, try walking to a further stop or get off a stop early. If your commute is too long, make it a Walk to Lunch Day. Join MIT in the Walk/Ride Day challenge.
