Holy Cross students have many options to access the city of Worcester and beyond.
Holy Cross Shuttles
We are recessing our van services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and Massachusetts requirements.
Normally, 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. Due to social distancing requirements and high risk for spreading the virus, van service is extremely limited.
For questions about your shuttle or quick changes during the day call 508-793-2777.
Daily Weekday Schedules - In Recess
We are recessing from our van services due to the coronavirus pandemic.
All services below are on hold during the pandemic.
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 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 during the week. All requests need to be in two full business days in advance to be scheduled/ considered.
NOTE: We do not shuttle groups or combined field trips over 22 passengers. Departments will have to contact an outside vendor for large groups.
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.
Special Shuttles to Worcester Area Destinations and Boston
The Student Government Association sponsors weekend shuttles to Boston, the Shoppes at Blackstone Valley, Walmart and Shrewsbury Street when classes are in session. The service is available to students with current Holy Cross ID.

New York Bus Shuttles for Breaks
Sponsored by the Student Government Association, Holy Cross contracts with CoTo Travel, a transportation company that specializes in student travel and business programs, to offer shuttle bus service to and from New York.
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).
Worcester’s Union Station is an inter-modal hub, hosting Amtrak, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority commuter rail service to Boston, taxi service, as well as both intra- and inter-City bus services.
