Getting around Boston

Whether you are living on or off campus, you will need to get around. While we do not offer on-campus parking, there are a number of ways to get around and easily access our campus.

Public Transportation

MBTA: The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), or “the T,” is the most popular form of public transportation for students since it is both affordable and easy to use.

We are conveniently located on the Longwood Medical Area stop on the Green “E” Heath Street Line. We are also a walkable distance from the Ruggles stop on the Orange line.

The MBTA website has a useful tool called the Trip Planner that allows students to plan their transportation. This tool takes transit schedules and service into account and allows students to choose their preferred mode of transportation. For this and more info on public transportation routes, schedules, and more, visit www.mbta.com.

MCPHS students are able to take advantage of discounted semester passes through our Student Activities Office.
