Shuttle & Van Service

Shuttles provide a key source of cross-campus transportation. Based on community feedback, augmented services will be available to connect Cambridge and Allston.

COVID-19 Update: Harvard University Transportation Services is planning to operate a reduced schedule in fall 2020 that will combine fixed routes for shuttles along with on-demand van service. A summary of the fall schedule can be found on the Transportation & Parking website https://www.transportation.harvard.edu/fall-2020-service (please note this is subject to change).
