getting around Boston College

Wondering how your son or daughter will get around the Heights this fall? The Boston College Shuttle transports students between Newton and the Main Campus and to the Brighton Campus. The shuttle also runs down Commonwealth Avenue to the Reservoir MBTA train station, which offers connections into Boston and Logan International Airport. There’s also Sunday shuttle service to a nearby grocery store and to Newton Center. See below for actual routes and more information on getting around campus and Boston.
