BU CRC – BU Med Campus Shuttle

For a complete schedule listing of the bus shuttle that runs between BU CRC (Main Campus) and BU Medical Campus, click on the following link: BU Bus Shuttle

BUSPH is accessible by public transportation and provides services for alternative modes of transportation.

Although the subway (known locally as “the T”) does not run directly to the Medical Campus, there is bus transportation from many T stops to the School. Frequent T and bus users can purchase a pass from major MBTA and Commuter Rail stations as well as some retail outlets. Students can save 11 percent by purchasing a “Semester Pass.” Students pay for a semester’s worth of passes (4 months) to receive this discount. Applications are available at 609 Albany Street, in the Office of Parking and Transportation.

For more detailed information about student’s semester passes, bike cage access, and other transportation options – please visit the TranSComm website!
