Lost & Found
We will make every attempt to recover lost items on board shuttles, however, neither Charles River TMA, nor our contractor, Paul Revere Transportation, LLC, assumes any responsibility for items lost on board shuttle buses. If you have lost an item, please call 617-839-4636 (617-8EZ-INFO) and leave a message describing the lost item, the time and direction of the shuttle trip you were on, and the bus number. We will contact you to arrange for pick up if the item is found.
Bike Rack Guidelines
All EZRide Shuttle buses feature front-mounted bike racks. Each bus can carry two standard bicycles. If you wish to use the bike racks, please familiarize yourself with our Bike Rack Usage Guidelines.
Board at Designated Stops Only
Per the instructions of the Cambridge License Commission, EZRide Shuttle drivers cannot board or discharge passengers outside of the designated stop areas. Charles River TMA and Paul Revere Transportation have stepped up enforcement of this policy. Passengers are asked not to approach buses that are stopped in traffic outside of stops and to only board at designated stop locations.
Boarding passengers outside of bus stops creates unsafe situations for both passengers and other motorists and cyclists. Established bus stops ensure that buses do not make unexpected stops while in traffic, and also discourage passengers from walking into traffic to reach buses. We ask for your cooperation and understanding to help ensure a safe shuttle operation for passengers and the general public alike.
