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 jams, 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.
