4 College Freshman

Transportation: You are right in boston so the possibilities are endless. you have many forms of transportation and the t is just a 2 min walk away!

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation can sometimes get expensive and it is hard to get to places quickly

2 College Junior

Transportation: We technically have a campus shuttle. It's capus safety's car. It only runs between 6pm and 2 am. They will only pick you up/ drop you off at close t stops or other COF schools.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: It's boston so there's plenty of trains and buses that you can use to get around. It's pretty easy to get around, and for pretty cheap too. I guess it really depends on how much you want to go around different parts of the city. Make sure you don't miss the last T, or you'll have to pay big bucks to a cab driver.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: In terms of big campus shuttles there are no buses that drop kids off and have several pick up stops like the bigger universities. However there is a security campus shuttle that does pick up and drop students off in the later hours that do not feel comfortable walking to internships, jobs, or other activities they are involved in. However like I mentioned it is only available at certain hours and isn't students own personal shuttle to get dropped at activities for fun on the weekends etc. In terms of public transportation there are many options. Right outside of the school there is a bus stop that is for Massachusetts Public Transportation. Also there are two T (subway) stops both located in less than a five minute walk either direction from the school. The closer option might be the Fenway stop and there also is the Longwood Medical stop located behind the college. With the college rate and a charlie card which can be picked up at many places around the city (Shaw's groceries, certain subway stops etc.) each ride only costs $2.
