A brief description of the program(s), (s), including availability, participation levels, and specifics about discounts or subsidies offered (including pre-tax options):

Brandeis operates a comprehensive shuttle system around campus and to the local neighborhoods. A weekend shuttle takes students to Boston. The Student Union often organizes shuttles to the airport and major cities during holiday breaks. We have also started a shuttle service in 2010 connecting the Subway (MBTA Green Line) to campus for Staff. We offer reduced transit passes to Graduate Students (11% discount) and Pre Tax Transit Passes to Staff and Faculty.
