SafeRide shuttle detour

On Thursday, July 26, two MIT SafeRide shuttle routes the Cambridge West & Brookline shuttle and the Somerville-Brookline summer shuttle will adopt detoured routes during the bridge closure. The buses will continue to make all of the same stops, however, the shuttles will be detoured to the Mass Ave bridge to cross into Boston which is projected to add approximately 20 minutes to the trip. On the detour, some stops will be visited in a different order. This detour is scheduled from July 26 to August 11.

Visit the SafeRide page for more information.
