There is also a shuttle from the Medford campus to the Museum of Fine Arts and the New England Conservatory to accommodate students taking classes at those locations.

Medford Students can purchase semester passes for the MBTA bus and subway system for a discounted rate through the bursar's office (a semester pass bought in advance for an 11% discount).

Staff and faculty can pay for transit tickets, passes and commuter parking with pre-tax dollars.
