Research shows the success of a bacterial community depends on its shape.
In response to heavier shuttle-bus demand on winter mornings when bad weather is likely, the Tech Shuttle is temporarily offering extra trips on a van provided by the Parking and Transportation Office's SafeRide service.
For the next two months, Tech Shuttle (a service of the Charles River Transportation Management Association) will have service every 10 minutes from 8:05am until 10:43am. For the rest of the day until 7pm, the interval between buses reverts to the usual 20 minutes. This additional service will end on April 14.
The added white van with maroon trim (as opposed to the regular white-and-blue Paul Revere Transportation van) will have a Tech Shuttle sign on the fender and will make all stops.
The regular Tech Shuttle schedule and other information can be found on the web.
