Boston Ave Shuttle

The university ended the Boston Ave. shuttle route in February 2020 because of low ridership and high expense to Tufts. The 80 and the 94 MBTA bus routes will take you from main campus to 200 Boston Ave. 200 Boston Ave. is a 13 minute walk (0.7 miles) from the Academic Quad, which is the same distance between Carmichael and 574 Boston Ave. If you do choose Uber or Lyft, taking an Uber Pool or Lyft Line is the most sustainable option.
