    Service Information

    Evening van service is now a computerized system that looks at rider origin, destination, traffic, other trips, and request time when queuing a ride. Rides cannot be booked in the system before 7:00 PM. Safety is our number one goal and although we may get behind at times due request volume we will provide every requested ride within our service boundary.  If able, please use a scheduled shuttle service before booking a van ride to make sure we are able to serve members of the Harvard Community as efficiently as possible.
