boston college transportation and parking services

Bicycles on campus are a common sight, whether it is a student traveling between classes or a commuter taking a day off from the grind of traffic jams on a sunny spring morning. Boston College offers many services to the bicyclist to aid in his or her commute and in securing their equipment. Both campuses have several bike rack locations and locker areas with showers to prepare for the day after a long ride.

The following links will bring up maps that outline racks for bicycles and scooters. Click on the heading for Newton or Chestnut Hill to view a PDF map. (Requires the free Adobe Acrobat Reader)

Where To Lock Your Bike

All bikes must be locked on the bike rack. Make sure your bike is parallel to the rack and that it does not prevent people from using the sidewalk. If there's another bike parked at the rack, make sure not to accidentally lock the other bike with yours!
