Commuting & Rideshare
boston college transportation and parking services
Commuting to and from Boston College and its outlying properties is the same for all who commute in Eastern Massachusetts: difficult. Traffic snarls, snow in the winter, potholes in the spring, and lots and lots of people and vehicles. Boston College offers programs to help the commuter, and works in conjunction with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection's Rideshare program.
BC offers preferred parking to commuters, bike racks and facilites for bicyclists, and easy access to the MBTA and other forms of mass transit. The University is always seeking to find ways to reduce the number of drive-alone trips to reduce congestion and lower pollutants produced by commuting.
Therefore, BC includes the following links on its Transportation web site to offer a conduit to students, faculty, and staff members on what is available:
- BC Shuttle Bus
- Guaranteed Ride Home
- MassRIDES — find a vanpool
- Mass Pike
- MBTA — Commuter Rail
