Hotel Shuttle Schedule

UPATE: Please be aware that starting Saturday, December 9th the Mustang Express will be out of service. To accommodate this temporary change, the Mount Ida Shuttle will be taking on the evening hotel route with an altered schedule. This change impacts both weekday and weekend service.

Starting after 8:00 pm, the Mount Ida Shuttle will depart from the clock in front of the Campus Center to the Sheraton Hotel and will depart the Sheraton Hotel to the Newton Center stop before returning to Mount Ida. Please see the Mount Ida College Shuttle schedule for specific departure times.

For students staying at the Sheraton Needham shuttle and van transportation to the Mount Ida Campus will be provided seven days a week. Students will be able to board the shuttle at the portico in front of the hotel and in front of the School of Applied Sciences. Your Mount Ida ID must be shown to board the shuttle. Anyone from the Mount Ida Community can ride the shuttle.

Please use good time management, and consider that it will take 30 minutes for the bus to go round trip from the hotel to campus, back to the hotel. Therefore, if you have a class at 8:00 am, for instance, we would recommend that you board a bus between 7:00 and 7:15 am, so you are not late for class.

Public Transportation from the Hotel

Students can access the T through the transportation provided by the Sheraton Needham shuttle service. The shuttle service offers transportation to the Newton Highlands train station.
