We are committed to providing safe and reliable transportation and parking for the University community. This includes shuttle and van service, fleet management, parking, and our award winning CommuterChoice Program which offers a number of sustainable transportation options.


In 2018, Harvard announced that it would seek to become fossil-fuel free by 2050 and neutral by 2026. Check out ways that the University community has taken steps toward this goal with their commuting habits.

The Emergency Ride Home Program supports Harvard green commuters with a free ride if an unexpected emergency arises. Simply take a taxi, ride hailing service, transit, Zipcar or rental car in the event of a qualified emergency, and the CommuterChoice program will reimburse benefits-eligible employees up to $100 for the cost of getting home.
