If you come to the campus using public transportation, take the MBTA Red Line subway to the JFK/UMASS station. There is a free shuttle service between the subway station and the campus. It takes only a couple of minutes from the subway station to the campus. Shuttle buses run every 5 to 10 minutes. See this site for more details on the subway map. For the schedule and routes of the capmus shuttle service, see this page.
