Late Night Transportation Options On Campus
Out late? Don’t walk back to your residence hall alone. Here are some options for transportation around BU at night.
Scarlet Safe Walk
Members of the student-run escort security service are available to walk with you to your on-campus destination late at night. They are stationed at Mugar Library, but can walk you from and to wherever you may need on the Charles River Campus and Fenway Campus. Call them at 617-353-4877 between the hours of 10pm and 2am for a safe walk to your destination. Please note that this service only is available during the fall and spring semesters.
BU Shuttle/BU Bus
The BU Shuttle (or the BUS) runs a late night Charles River Campus Service that runs in the early morning hours. The late night schedule and specific stops are available on their website.
There are many taxi services around Boston. We don’t endorse one service above any other, but we do recommend that you find one or two and program their numbers into your phone, even if you think you will never need one. It’s always good to be prepared.
There are also several phone applications that you can download to your smartphone that will send a cab to you and allow for you to pay for it via a stored credit card number. Uber and Lyft are two apps that serve the BU campus.
