Tech Shuttle adjusts schedule after feedback


After a tryout period for the new Tech Shuttle (which replaced the old CRTMA shuttle on February 1), the schedule has been revised in response to rider requests.

The new schedule (also available on line) below went into effect on February 16.

The new shuttle provides more service to students living in residences on the west side of campus and staff members who travel to west campus locations. As a result, the first weeks of the shuttle saw a huge increase in ridership, primarily from the student community, so the new schedule provides for three trips per hour rather than two.

During the next several months, a small committee of staff and students will examine utilization, levels of service, routes and schedules for all shuttle systems serving MIT. Anyone with questions or comments may contact Lydia Snover in the Planning Office, x3-5838; John McDonald in the Parking and Transportation Office, x8-6510; or Jim Gascoigne at the Charles River Transportation Management Association, 679-5381, coin1@mit.edu.

Service runs Monday through Friday from 7:15am-7:10pm. The shuttles operated by Paul Revere Transportation are white with blue trim; look for the maroon "Tech Shuttle" signs.
