College Shuttle Schedules, Apps & Information
Bus schedule changes were made in fall 2021 after reviewing ridership patterns. We looked to optimize bus routes by eliminating near-empty bus runs and supporting high-volume ridership hours. This should result in environmental benefits (per the AY ’21 student ballot question developed by the ECON 199 students) and operational cost savings while providing essential service to Wellesley students. Peter Eastment is available to engage with students in finding alternative solutions should the schedule changes pose a significant challenge.

MASKS MUST BE WORN ON ALL BUSES AND SHUTTLES
Guests are not permitted on the Exchange Bus or Senate Bus
Only MIT or Wellesley community members may ride the MIT Exchange Bus and only Wellesley students may ride the Senate Bus. The College will revisit this policy if at a later date students are permitted to have guests indoors on campus.
