Harvard recognized as one of the best workplaces for commuters

International Edu News

Harvard is being recognized as one of the top Universities for commuters in the country. Harvard’s CommuterChoice program recently received a 2021 Best Workplace for Commuters award based on the level of commuter-benefits provided to our community members. Those benefits include Harvard’s 50 percent subsidy on transit passes, discounted memberships for Bluebikes bike sharing, carpool and vanpool programs, the Guaranteed Ride Home program, discounted ride-sharing through Zipcar, and comprehensive intra-campus shuttle service.

Harvard also has an exceptionally low Single Occupancy Vehicle (SOV) rate which calculates the number of University affiliates who drive alone to campus. While 2020 was an unusual year due to COVID-19, Harvard’s typical SOV rate is about 15 percent.
