Babson students have access to a number of transportation options to get to and from the Babson campus.
In collaboration with Olin College of Engineering and Wellesley College, Babson offers a shuttle service from Monday-Friday that runs between the three campuses. To utilize this shuttle, you need a Babson OneCard.
Babson-Woodland T Station Shuttle
During the academic year, Babson runs a shuttle from campus to the Woodland T Station on the weekends. During the summer, a modified schedule runs to even more stops, including the post office, the Natick Mall, the T Station, and Target.
Babson College and Zipcar are partners in bringing car sharing to campus. Zipcars are self-service cars parked on campus that can be reserved online, by the hour or day. The cars are available to all for $35/year membership, and gas, insurance, and parking are included in the low hourly rental rate of $8.50. Two self-service Zipcars—a Toyota Prius and a Honda Civic—are available for use 24 hours a day.
The college own mini-vans that are available for college related businesses and activities. These vans can be reserved and utilized by Babson Students for club and organization events. In order to use the van, the driver must take a van certification class that is provided by Public Safety.
Public Transportation near Babson’s Campus
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) is responsible for public transit in the Boston area, encompassing transportation via bus, subway, commuter rail, and boat. A number of options exist for students to utilize public transportation to access Babson:
- The subway (called the “T”) is the most common public transportation used in Boston, and Woodland Station is approximately two miles from Babson’s campus.
- The Wellesley Hill Commuter Rail Station is only one mile from campus. Be aware that while this option is closer to campus, but the Commuter Rail runs on a less frequent schedule.
