SNAP - Transportation Services
We encourage students, faculty, and staff to use WPI's Security Night Assistance Patrol, or SNAP. We currently staff 2 vans, seven days a week. Co-sponsored by the WPI Police Department and the Office of Residential Services, SNAP begins operation on the first night of classes each term and ends on the last day of classes at the end of the term: Sunday through Saturday, from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. during A-Term and D-Term and 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. during B-Term and C-Term
Guidelines for utilizing the SNAP Transportation service include:
escorts must fall under a limit of a one (1) mile radius.
escorts will be provided from off-campus housing, to campus and from campus, to off-campus housing.
escorts will be provided when on campus to anywhere else on campus.
escorts will be provided to Price Chopper grocery store at Park Avenue on Thursdays 4pm to 5pm and Sundays 4pm to 5pm.
escorts are not used for rides to shopping centers, restaurants, bars, or any other commercial locations.
escorts may be provided to and from the Train Station or Bus Station to WPI Students for traveling purposes only.
escorts are not allowed by law to transport any forms of drugs or alcohol. SNAP drivers are authorized to view any enclosed packages and /or containers.
You can reach SNAP by calling +1-508-831-6111. Calls will be handled as expeditiously as possible. However, there may be times when an escort is delayed; please be patient and waiting where you can see the van during such times.
