Transportation

Holy Cross students have many options to access the city of Worcester and beyond. 

Holy Cross Shuttles

The Office of Transportation provides our college community with safe and reliable shuttle van services. We own and maintain a fleet of vehicles that are used to support Holy Cross-sponsored trips.

Daily Shuttle Service for Programs

Free daily shuttle service for students, faculty and staff is offered when classes are in session. Shuttles make numerous stops throughout Worcester, including Union Station, colleges, Worcester public schools, cultural centers, and non-profit organizations.

Please expect delays during peak times (2:30-5:30 p.m.). Shuttles are not available over summer or other academic breaks.

Request a Group/Passenger Shuttle

Students, faculty and staff can request shuttle service to local destinations including athletic activities, community service, course field trips, scholarly meetings and club events. Academic program requests receive first priority.

A 48-hour notice is required. Weekend shuttles can be requested for field trips only.

Reserve a Shuttle Van

Certified students, faculty and staff can reserve a van to drive for a trip. A 48-hour notice is required. (The system will not accept requests less than 48 hours in advance.) Van requests will not be approved without a chart string.

Please note: All vans have GPS safety monitors. Alerts for excessive speed, idle time and hard braking are sent to Public Safety. Please respect the laws of the land, and the laws of physics. For example, driving 20 mph over the posted speed limit will suspend driving privileges.

Zipcar

Zipcars give students who don’t have access to a private car the opportunity for excursions.

Zipcars are available at Holy Cross for students and general public to rent. The cars are parked in the student lot behind the Hogan Campus Center. To be eligible to rent a car, drivers need to apply for a Zip Card and pay an annual fee. Rental costs are $7.50-8.50 an hour depending on the vehicle (including gas, insurance, and parking fees). Each car will have a fuel card for the purpose of refueling as needed (all costs incurred by Zipcar).
