Last Friday night, I was trapped on a Harvard Shuttle for a total of 53 consecutive minutes. That’s just as long as many Harvard lectures.
Starting this fall, shuttle service will include a 5:15 a.m. trip and increased service during move-in week and senior week.
The M2 Cambridge-Vanderbilt Hall shuttle, which travels from Harvard Square to Harvard Medical School, drops off passengers outside of Widener Gate.
At a meeting of the Harvard Graduate Student Government last Tuesday, students passed a resolution to expand M2 shuttle service to include Sunday operations.
Dean Pfister hands out bookmarks to students on an early-morning shuttle ride on the Mather Express route. He gave hints indicating his shuttle ride in an email send out the day before.
Harrison P. Bush Sr., who began driving shuttles for Harvard in 2007 and most recently serviced the Quad route from Monday through Friday, died Jan. 9.
The Harvard shuttle service is expanding its weekend availability and introducing a new smartphone application for tracking and locating buses.
A little over a week ago, we lamented that it was more convenient to get to the Yard for students using Wellesley’s bus system than for students in the Quad using Harvard’s own shuttles—but now it looks like Harvard has taken the lead in the battle for better transportation.
Beginning this weekend, Quad shuttles, like this one pictured in a 2009 file photo, will once again run before noon on Saturdays and Sundays.
The announcement reverses a 2009 cut that halted Quad shuttle service before noon on Saturdays and Sundays.
Well, this is awkward. Wellesley just made it much easier to get to - and from - Harvard on weekend mornings than it is for actual Harvard students who live in the Quad to get to the Yard.
