Parking on the Newton Campus

The BC Shuttle can be a great way for students who don’t own a car to get to and from the Law School. For detailed routes and current schedules, please visit the BC Transportation Shuttle Bus page.
The Law School Express shuttle runs four times in the morning directly from the Reservoir T stop in Cleveland Circle to the Law School, making a few stops along Chestnut Hill Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue. The Express shuttle also runs twice in the afternoon, making the same trip in reverse. Please note that the Express shuttle does not run on the weekend or during the summer.
The Newton Campus Shuttle makes regular trips between the Newton Campus and the Chestnut Hill Campus.
The Comm. Ave. Shuttle makes regular trips between the Chestnut Hill Campus and Cleveland Circle,stopping on campus and along Commonwealth Avenue and Chestnut Hill Avenue.
