MASCO: October 2018 Shuttle Updates (Urgent) 2018-09-05T00:00:00 Effective October 1 2018, there will be several changes to the MASCO Shuttle System

Please click here to be redirected to the MASCO website page for this change. More details and files are available there.

1a.) Due to construction at BIDMC West Campus, the Ruggles BIDMC PM will no longer begin at the West Campus. For those who board at BIDMC West Campus, two alternate stops are available beginning October 1. Both stops are approximately one block from the previous stop. (The above link includes maps of those stops)

1b.) The Ruggles BWH PM Route will see increased access, frequency, and longer service. Both routing and scheduling changes will occur for both the BIDMC and BWH Ruggles Shuttles.

2.) The M2 will no longer run along Fenway while heading to Cambridge. It will now enter and exit the LMA via Brookline Avenue. Stops have been added in both directions at the Landmark Building, Yawkey Station, and Kenmore Square. No schedule changes are anticipated.

3.) Beginning October 1, 2018, The Chestnut Hill Parking area is moving to the Shops at Chestnut Hill.  The shuttle schedule will remain the same.   

4.) Due to BIDMC West Campus construction, the Fenway Midday, Midday Express, and PM shuttles will no longer stage on Deaconess Road at the BIDMC West Campus. These shuttles will now pickup passengers at the corner of Brookline Ave. and Deaconess Rd. No schedule changes are anticipated, and all other bus stops remain the same. 

5.) MASCO will no longer have parking or shuttles at the Crosstown Garage. MASCO shuttle service to Crosstown will be eliminated except for those taking the JFK shuttle who may request a flag stop inbound and board at Island St. outbound. 

NOTE: The JFK AM Route will still make a stop near the Crosstown Garage upon request from a passenger on board. Use of the "Stop Request" bell is not sufficient, and any passengers wishing to get off at Crosstown must directly inform the driver upon boarding.  

6.) The JFK PM Route will be combined with the Wentworth PM Route, increasing the frequency of both. Slight route modification with no impact to travel times. 

If you have any feedback or questions regarding any of these changes please contact Jim Nee, Transportation Manager with MASCO at
