WPI’s Gateway Shuttle, SNAP, and Price Chopper Shuttle programs provide complimentary transportation to help our community get to and from the main campus, Gateway Park, nearby residences, Union Station, two pharmacies, and a supermarket.

Valet Park of America operates all services using 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. Workers will frequently clean surfaces with a disinfectant.
