Bentley does provide several transportation options for students. The most popular services offered on campus are the free shuttles. The Loop Shuttle runs through campus, stopping at several places along the way including North Campus, in front of Rauch, and Fenway Apartments. The Harvard Shuttle is for Bentley students only, providing a direct link to get into Boston from campus via Harvard Square in Cambridge; the trip is about 25 minutes long. From there, you are able to access the MBTA subway and buses to all points around the city of Boston. Both run on a closely followed schedule, which makes it a fairly reliable way to get around campus or into the city. The Harvard Shuttle also runs loops to North Campus when the Loop Shuttle has stopped. On hours when the shuttle might not be running, taxis are an option.
Despite these great opportunities, it can still be a pain to not have a car on campus. However, parking can be an issue and freshmen are prohibited from having cars on campus to prevent further overcrowding. For the unfamiliar driver, Boston can be a very complicated city to drive around, and street parking is fairly limited while garage parking is extremely expensive. But having a car affords an easier time living in an apartment where you have to buy your own groceries.
