Commuter Services

The Office of Student Activities (OSA) works with Connecticut Commuter Services to provide information to our students, faculty and staff about ways to travel to and from campus other than driving one person per car. Manchester Community College (MCC) strives to engage our students and campus fully within the surrounding communities. No information on this webpage can replace the information gathered by speaking with individuals or making adult decisions about the pros and cons of each transportation option. This webpage is intended to be used for information purposes only, use at your discretion and at your own risk.
