Harvard’s ShuttleTracker Moves to the Passio Go App

Harvard’s ShuttleTracker Moves to the Passio Go App


ShuttleTracker, which allows real-time tracking of Harvard’s shuttles on campus, has moved to the Passio Go app. The new platform offers a number of improvements including more consistent real-time tracking and other useful tools so riders can better plan their travels. Download the Passio Go app from the App Store or Google Play. For more information visit www.shuttle.harvard.edu.

Transportation Services is providing more flexible programs and services to meet the shifting commuting needs of the Harvard community. Please visit transportation.harvard.edu/flexible for program updates.

Harvard is taking a significant step towards eliminating the use of fossil fuel on campus. The University is purchasing four, battery-based electric buses, as part of an aggressive effort to advance solutions for climate change, improve public health, and support the University’s climate goals of becoming fossil fuel-free by 2050 and fossil fuel-neutral by 2026. The 100% electric buses from Proterra, which are expected to be on the road in the fall of 2021, will replace four, bio-diesel powered buses representing more than 30% of Harvard’s bus fleet. Harvard will also invest in the electric charging infrastructure needed to support the vehicles. In addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the buses will also create less air and noise pollution, providing health benefits to the local community.
