Please remember due to traffic and weather conditions that these times are approximate. The MBTA is in the midst of a parking garage construction project at the Salem train depot. Additional detours and delays may result from this project. As a result of the garage construction project the new pick-up and drop-off zone at the Salem depot will be the MBTA bus loop inside the parking lot just outside of the construction zone fence.  Passengers arriving at the train depot should be on the look out for the white vans with the Salem State University SGA logo.

The Salem State student shuttle staff thanks you for your patience and understanding and hope to satisfy your commuting needs. Questions or concerns can be directed to Corporal Michael Haggstrom at 978.542.2204 or mhaggstrom@salemstate.edu.
