HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – Base officials have announced that a 66th Logistics Readiness Squadron-run shuttle is now available to Department of Defense contractor employees.

The free shuttle has been operating since May for military and federal civilian employees from the Concord Commuter Rail Station to Hanscom AFB.

The service offers four morning runs and three afternoon runs, with the morning pick up located at the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, or MBTA, rail station at 90 Thoreau St, Concord, Massachusetts.

Morning pick-up shuttles depart Concord Station at 5:30, 6:30, 7:30, and 8:30 a.m. Commute time to Hanscom AFB is approximately 20 minutes after departing Concord.

The afternoon pick-up locations are outside buildings 1606, 1604, 1305 and 1106, beginning at 3:25, 4:25, and 5:25 p.m.

This service is an LRS initiative to reduce the overall number of vehicles on the road and to promote alternative transportation options for base commuters, according to LRS officials.

To participate, interested riders must first register at the CAC-enabled registration site before reserving a seat at the CAC-enabled booking site.

Federal employees are eligible to receive $300 per month in TransServe Transit Benefits to help defray, and often fully cover, the costs of utilizing the Boston area subways and Commuter Rail to Hanscom Air Force Base.

According to Hanscom AFB commuter program officials, while contractors are not eligible for the federal commuter subsidy, some companies offer similar benefits to employees.
