Hop a Shuttle and Reduce Travel Time


Be sure to protect yourself and others
Protect yourself and others on the shuttle by following the MIT policies based on the guidelines from MIT Medical, the city and state, and the CDC:

  • All riders are strongly encouraged to wear a mask, but masks are optional on MIT shuttles and on public and private transportation. The CDC and Massachusetts Department of Health continue to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings, particularly those who are at increased risk.
  • Do not ride the shuttle if you are feeling sick.
  • Maintain a safe distance from other riders when possible.

A variety of shuttle services are available to safely transport members of the MIT community to, from, and around the MIT campus.
