Getting to ET During CPW

The best way to get to our house is to meet one of us at Lobby 7 to catch our Great White Van (we’ll be holding yellow signs). Make sure to check the detailed schedule for the van time, but here is an overview of when we generally have van runs during rush:

8:55am, 9:55am, 5:15pm, 7:00pm
12:15pm, 1:30pm, 3:30pm, 5:15pm, 7:00pm, 9:00pm

You can also get to our house on the Cambridge West/Brookline Saferide. You’ll recognize us by the yellow house located right across the street from a park about 15 minutes into the route. Saferide runs from 6:00pm to 2:00am on Sunday through Wednesday, and from 6:00pm to 3:00am on Thursday through Saturday. On campus, you can catch Saferide at the turnaround behind the student center.

You can also call us to get a ride over. Call the house at (617) 734-9211 from any campus phone. We will be happy to come get you no matter where you may be! (Unless you happen to be in Kansas or Neverland or something.)
