As students gear up to leave campus for Thanksgiving Break, Tufts University Public Safety will operate this year’s Turkey Shuttle.
Before the shuttle starts up again, we asked students weigh in on whether or not the convenience of having a bus take students to their respective modes of transportation is worth it.
On Tuesday, the Turkey Shuttle buses will leave from the Campus Center to Logan Airport and South Station, beginning at 8:30 am, leaving every 2 hours until 6:30 pm.
On Wednesday, the shuttle will leave the Campus Center at 6:30 am, 8:30 am, and 10:30 am.
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Campus Center Info Booth. Buses depart from the Campus Center Upper Patio (44 Professors Row). You must have a ticket to board the bus. Let us know your thoughts about the Turkey Shuttle and its pros and cons in the comments below, on our Facebook page, or email email@example.com!
“Yes it’s worth the extra money, especially because many people would feel it a hassle to carry a lot of bags down to Davis Square”
Elena Michaels, sophomore
“I’m not using it because I’m driving, but if I had to take a train, plane, or anything else I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to use it.”
Izzy Spada, freshman
“It seems a little expensive in comparison to the T, which I think is only around $2.40. I personally won’t be using it.”
“I wish that they had a 5:30 shuttle rather than 4:30 because I can’t take the 6:30 shuttle.”
Julia Tang, freshman
“Where do you purchase a ticket? I think they should have advertised it more than just via email, because it seems like a good way to leave for the holidays, and it’s worked in the past.”
