Wellesley students have more regular and reliable access to the resources and entertainment opportunities in the greater Boston area than any other suburban campus.

That's thanks to the College's own transportation and Boston's public transit systems.   The MIT Exchange and Senate Buses run hourly on weekdays and even more frequently on weekends to locations in Cambridge and downtown Boston;  the Wellesley-Olin-Babson Shuttle  and Mall/Movie shuttles which take you to other schools and attractions in the area,  also pick up a short walk from your residence hall.  The Wellesley Square Commuter Rail stop (on the Framingham/Worcester line) is located in the ville;  the Woodland stop (on the Green Line of the "T"- the MBTA subway system) is only a few miles away.  Want more information and real-time updates?  Check the Latest Updates section on this page,  or call the Transportation Hotline at 781.283.2318.
