This message was sent to students and employees.

As the new academic year begins, the Gateway Shuttle, Student Night Assistance Patrol (SNAP), and Price Chopper Shuttle are resuming operations. These free van transportation services will begin rolling Aug. 31, and we want to tell you about some changes aimed at promoting the health and safety of our community.

Valet Park of America will continue to operate the Gateway Shuttle, and it is also taking over operation of SNAP and the Price Chopper Shuttle. All services will use clearly marked passenger vans. Some seats will be blocked off to promote social distancing, and passengers must wear face coverings. When boarding, riders must present their WPI ID and use the hand sanitizer that will be provided.

  • The Gateway Shuttle will operate weekdays on a set route and schedule.
  • SNAP will operate nights and weekends in a limited area. This year, SNAP passengers must book their rides using the TransLoc app, which is available through the WPI app. The TransLoc app allows users to enter their starting location and destination. Users can also track the estimated arrival time of a SNAP van.
  • The Price Chopper Shuttle will operate Wednesdays and Sundays on a set route and schedule.

Much more information about the Gateway Shuttle, SNAP, the Price Chopper Shuttle, shuttle stops, and schedules is available on the Campus Transportation Program Services webpages.

One important thing to know is that the vans do not have wheelchair lifts. If you need wheelchair-accessible transportation, please call WPI Police at 508-831-5433.

We look forward to helping you!
