Buses leave regularly from bus shelters on East Newton Street, East Concord Street and Massachusetts Avenue. For more information, visit the transportation kiosks or call 617-358-3506. You may also visit the MBTA’s Web page at http://www.mbta.com/

Transportation kiosks providing free transportation information including MBTA bus and train schedules, maps, and shuttle bus schedules are located in the School of Medicine (adjacent to Student Affairs Office), in the lobby of the School of Dental Medicine, in the School of Public Health in the alcove in T2C. Kiosks are also located throughout the lobbies of Boston Medical Center.


The only change is riders buying Zone 1 monthly passes to commute to/from South Station or JFK/UMASS to/from Quincy Center, as only a Zone 1A is needed during the disruption.
