Getting Around Campus

Sprawling nearly two miles along Commonwealth Avenue, our campus is always brimming with life. You’ll never have a shortage of ways to get from here, to there, or anywhere.

BU Shuttle

Get around campus in true BU style with the BU Shuttle (the BUS.) Check the schedule, get service updates, and track each shuttle in real-time. The BUS is free to use and will always get you where you need to go.


An accessible campus map, provided through the BU Maps system, directs you to accessible parking, curb cuts, and other useful information. It is also constantly updated to reflect the urban and ever-changing nature of the Boston University campus.


You can quickly and easily hop on a Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) bus or a train from campus to various places in the city and beyond. The Green Line, B train makes it easy to get anywhere you need to be on campus. Check the MBTA site for maps and schedules and learn more about where to pick up a Charlie Card or Ticket (you can always pay with cash on above-ground stops!)
