RTS will provide safe, reliable, convenient and free transportation between MCC's Brighton Campus and Downtown Campus beginning on September 5, 2017! Students and employees can access the service on specific routes and only when classes are in session with a valid MCC identification card.
This new service agreement replaces our previous shuttle service.
The details of the new MCC service are as follows:
Route 5 MCC Downtown: This is a new route that will run Monday through Friday between the RTS Transit Center, Mortimer St. Shelter and MCC's Downtown Campus on State Street. Buses will run every 10 minutes between 6:55 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., and every hour between 12:21 p.m. and 9:11 p.m. Route 5 MCC Downtown will only operate when MCC classes are in session. Members of the MCC community will ride for free on Route 5 by showing the bus operator their valid MCC ID. This route is also available to the general public.
Route 55 MCC Brighton & Route 155 MCC Brighton ROC-IT: The existing Route 50 MCC will be renamed the Route 55 MCC Brighton starting on Monday, September 4, 2017. Route 155 MCC Brighton ROC-IT is a new route that will follow the same route path as Route 55, but will make fewer stops along the way. Both travel between the Transit Center, Mortimer St. shelter and the Brighton Campus. These two routes will operate Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m., with buses arriving at the Center Road loop on MCC's Brighton Campus every half hour. Members of the MCC community will ride for free on Routes 55 and 155 by showing the bus operator their valid MCC ID. These routes will also be available to the general public.
Route 23 Jefferson: Members of the MCC community traveling to and from the Brighton Campus Monday through Friday after 5:00 p.m. can ride for free by showing the bus operator their MCC ID. Route 23 buses will pick up and drop off students at the bus shelter on Campus Drive near entrance/exit B on MCC's Brighton Campus.
Route maps and information for 5, 55, 155 and 23 will be available on the RTS website in August, prior to the start of the fall semester. To plan your trip or find other information about RTS please visit www.myRTS.com. You can also find stops on the MCC Campuses on our Campus Maps!
