Wheels When You Need Them


Students, faculty & staff at Mount Ida College can sign up to use the two Zipcars available in the Campus Center lot. With Zipcar parked right in the Campus Center lot, it’s easy to check out Newton Centre, get downtown, run errands, or even take a road trip. And since Zipcar covers gas, insurance, and 180 miles per day, you can enjoy the freedom of the open road without any of the extra costs.

Don’t have a car – No worries!

Public Transit

The Mount Ida College Shuttle can get you here and back. The shuttle connects riders to and from campus to Newton Centre and Boston via the MBTA’s Green Line Riverside Branch and runs on a posted schedule. The MBTA #52 bus which also stops in Newton Centre, will take you to within a few blocks of campus.
