Getting Around

Biking can offer a fast and efficient method of commuting to work or school and traveling around Harvard's campuses.

Walking is an important part of every commute and provides a healthy and environmentally friendly way to get around.

Employees who commute green can be reimbursed for up to four trips per year via taxi/ride hail, transit or rental car in the event of a personal or family emergency.
