Campus Shuttles and Van Routes

Brandeis provides safe and efficient transportation for all members of the community who need to travel from one point to another on campus or who need to commute to downtown Waltham, Cambridge or Boston.

Boston Cambridge Shuttle Update.

The Brandeis Public Safety Department is finalizing details with our vendor to begin the Boston/Cambridge Shuttle. The Boston/Cambridge shuttle schedule has been updated on our site; see link below. For community members looking to use the service, it will require downloading the Tripshot application available in the Google Play store and Iphone App store to track the bus.

In the summer of 2021, we reevaluated our transportation system using the 2021 Campus Transportation Survey. As a result of that survey, improvements have been implemented over the course of the semester. As we work to improve campus transportation, we would like to hear from you about your experiences with the service. We urge Students, Faculty, and Staff to use our new University Transportation Feedback Form to make their voices heard. 

NEW: 2022 Service Animal Policy

The Brandeis Department of Public Safety is responsible for ensuring that all riders on the Brandeis University transportation system are treated fairly and in accordance with the U.S. Department of Transportation regulations regarding “service animals.” Please see the attached policy.
