Your dreams. Our mission.

Public Transportation

Students attending MassBay Community College typically live in communities throughout Metropolitan Boston, Metro West and Central Massachusetts.

There is ample parking at MassBay, but many students prefer to take public transportation to campus. You can take the shuttle for free with a MassBay ONE Card. Schedule for ONE Card.

From Boston and Points East

Many students who live in Boston and its surrounding communities ride the MBTA to their classes at MassBay. Students take the Green Line D Train to Riverside Station where a MassBay Shuttle departs every 15 – 20 minutes for the one-mile trip to the Wellesley Hills campus. MassBay’s Riverside Shuttle Schedule

Another option from Boston is the Wellesley Hills Station on the Commuter Rail, one mile from MassBay’s campus. The Commuter Rail from Boston is faster than the Riverside Green Line Train, but it runs less frequently and is more expensive. Also, there is no MassBay Shuttle Service from the Commuter Rail Station.

From Points West

The Metro West Regional Transit Authority (MWRTA) operates many bus routes throughout the Metro West region.

  • MWRTA Route 8 stops at MassBay’s front door in Wellesley Hills.
  • MWRTA Route 2, Route 3, Route 4N and Route 4S all stop at or very near MassBay’s Framingham Campus.
  • MWRTA Route 6 makes stops very close to MassBay’s Auto Technology Center in Ashland.

 

Travelling Between MassBay Framingham and Wellesley Hills Campuses

MassBay’s two main campuses are nine miles apart, and some MassBay students take classes on both campuses. MWRTA Van Service connects the Framingham and Wellesley campuses and is free for MassBay students. Here is the schedule for inter-campus Van Service.
