Transportation Fund

This fund provides assistance with significant commuting and/or parking costs and attempts to equalize commuting costs among members in different areas of the University.

In order to receive assistance from the Transportation Fund you must be a member of HUCTW and:

  • Commute to Harvard each day via the commuter rail (zone 5 or above);
  • Park in a MBTA parking lot or in the Longwood Medical Area;
  • Use a private commuter bus or a non-MBTA train; or
  • Accrue non-subsidized commuting expenses to and from work higher than $120/month or $1440/fiscal year.

Expenses incurred parking in a Cambridge garage owned by Harvard University, purchasing a T-pass for zones below zone 5, and for gasoline/tolls/wear of a privately owned vehicle are not eligible for reimbursement.

The transportation fund runs in two cycles and has two deadlines during the year. For expenses incurred between:

  • January 1st-June 30th, the application deadline is July 15th.
  • July 1st-December 31st, the application deadline is January 15th.
