The University runs two shuttle routes: one around campus and to Cleveland Circle, and the other to the Newton Campus where freshman residential halls, the Law School, and various athletic fields are located. Shuttle buses are wheelchair accessible.

Students must first contact Health Services in Cushing Hall (617-552-3225) or the Disability Services Office in Maloney Hall 212 (617-552-3470) and ask to be added to the medical transport list for Eagle Transportation. After this step has been completed, students should contact Eagle Transportation through the Boston College Police Department to request transport. Students with a medical or temporary disability can be picked up and dropped off on Middle Campus once a day and are permitted to go to Health Services between classes rather than returning to the residence hall if they need to rest or take a break between classes.
Students with a documented disability may apply for a parking permit through the Office of Transportation (www.bc.edu/transportation). Click on the icon for forms on the left; the application must be completed by both the student as well as an appropriate medical professional, and should be returned to the Office of Transportation for evaluation. Incomplete forms will be returned, resulting in a delay in reaching a decision. The Office of Transportation, in conjunction with the Disability Services Office, grants permits appropriate to each student's needs.
