There are many ways you can get here from there. The BUS (Boston University Shuttle) offers a free ride between the Charles River Campus and the Medical Campus. There are plenty of public transportation options or perhaps you prefer to use the Hubway bike rental system. We also have several parking options and offer a taxi voucher system to our students. There are also plenty of convenient ZipCar locations and lots of space to park your bike.
