Middlesex Town Shuttle(service to Concord)
Students who use the town shuttle or participate in school-sponsored weekend trips off campus need to sign out in their House books prior to departure.
- Weekdays (Monday through Friday)
Leaves from the Ware Hall Student Center making round trips to Concord beginning at 3:30pm. The last shuttle departs from Concord at 7:10pm.
Saturday shuttle service to Concord begins at 12:00pm making round trips with the last shuttle departing Concord at 7:10pm. On weekends there may also be vans or buses to local towns or attractions.
Car services and taxis
Students must obtain face-to-face permission from a faculty member in order to use any type of car services (including Uber, Lyft, taxi, etc.) and sign out using Moodle. As determined by a student’s permission form, a parent phone call may also be required (see “Automobiles” in the Student Life section of the Handbook). Permission to travel beyond the immediate area (Acton, Bedford, Burlington, Concord, Carlisle, Lexington, Lincoln, Sudbury or Westford) can only be granted by the student’s Head of House or the Deans’ Office and is subject to a student’s individual permissions.
With the exception of travel days, car services and taxis may only pick up students in the Acorn Lot. Please know that the School cannot assume responsibility for students who choose to use these types of services. We recommend, however, that students and parents review carefully the terms of service of any provider so engaged.
The School uses Go Boston Shuttle (formerly called Ultimate Livery) Car Service when booking transportation on behalf of students at school vacations. Students may charge their School account for Go Boston Shuttle service.
Type ‘Middlesex’ into the group ID / discount code box to be directed to the School’s page.
Students planning to take an MBTA train into Boston must get permission from their Head of House/on-duty faculty prior to leaving campus and sign out in their House book. Depending on the level of parental permission indicated on each student’s permission form, students might also need permission from a parent or guardian.
The Acton-Fitchburg line of the MBTA runs regularly from Concord to Cambridge and Boston (North Station). The Acton-Fitchburg line connects with the Red Line at Porter Square (access to South Station and Logan Airport via South Station), and with the Green Line and Orange Line at North Station.
