Getting Around Cambridge | 21 Harvard University maintains an exceptionally high rate of commuters who get to campus using sustainable options; over 85% of Harvard commuters choose an alternative option to driving alone! How did we get here? In part by providing a great variety of commuter options like these: Transit: Over 7,600 Harvard employees save 50% off their MBTA passes, and may use pre-tax dollars for private transit and for parking as part of transit commutes. Several graduate schools provide the MBTA Semester Pass Program for their students so they can save money riding the T. Bicycling: Harvard employees who bike to campus are eligible for up to $240 a year in reimbursable bike-relat- ed expenses. Last year nearly 500 employees utilized this benefit. Harvard supports seven Hubway stations in Cambridge, and over 1,000 Harvard students and staff have an annual Hubway membership. Harvard has nine bike repair stations and thousands of bike parking racks, and the Harvard University Police Department offers free bike registration. The CommuterChoice department actively promotes the Park&Pedal program – a great multimodal option for commuters to drive to a designated free parking area between home and Harvard, and bike the remaining distance. Driving together and car sharing: Harvard faculty and staff who drive together save significantly on their parking costs and have access to preferential parking locations so it’s easy to find a spot once they arrive to campus. Harvard and Zipcar have a long-standing partnership with 30 Zipcars on the Cambridge campus and nearly 9,000 active Harvard Zipcar members. To keep commuters rolling, Harvard promotes these options throughout the year with bike tune-ups, sustainable transportation fairs, commuter safety campaigns, and more.
