As is the case in life, many things only happen in our dreams: finishing a pset before the day it’s due, a full eight hours of sleep, and the shuttle being there for you when you actually need it. Whether you’re going to class from the Quad or Mather, returning back home after a long day of walking, or trying to visit the new SEAS complex, the shuttle is always necessary and never on schedule. And since we’re busy students, it’s probably a good idea to be ~productive~ when spending those many hours waiting for it to arrive.
As students traversed Harvard's campus during the first week of in-person classes, some reported negative experiences on University shuttles, citing long wait times and crowded rides.
The annual event aims to “let [the University community] know [about] all the stakeholders that are promoting sustainable transportation across campus,” said Ben Hammer of CommuterChoice.
Starting this fall, shuttle service will include a 5:15 a.m. trip and increased service during move-in week and senior week.
At a meeting of the Harvard Graduate Student Government last Tuesday, students passed a resolution to expand M2 shuttle service to include Sunday operations.
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.
