One benefit of going to school in the city is the availability of public transportation. The subway, called the "T," is extremely useful for getting around Cambridge, Boston, and the surrounding areas. It is also very affordable and costs between $1.70 and $2. The buses are the same price and are also very accessible, though they run on a schedule, while the T has trains coming every few minutes. Cabs are also available, though they tend to be pricey; however, the T stops running at 12:30 a.m., so if you need to get somewhere after that time, a cab is really your only choice.
Lesley University has four campuses: Main Campus, Brattle Campus, Porter Campus, and the Art Institute of Boston Campus. The University provides transportation to and from all of the campuses at pre-scheduled times. However, the shuttles are known to be unreliable, and with the city traffic, it is sometimes more efficient to just walk to class.
