Hello all,

I am a recent college graduate from San Antonio, TX. and I have recently been accepted for a job at Hanscom AFB. The starting salary isn't very high, and my soon to be fiance will be coming with me. I think I can make it work if I take an apartment closer to base, because the listings in Burlington and Bedford seem more affordable, but I am worried about commuting to and from work.

I don't think I will be able to continue to afford my car payments if I move, so I was hoping to rely on public transportation. I have taken a look at the bus routes going to Hanscom, but cannot find a feasible route that doesn't take forever.

Does anyone here have experience using public transportation to get to Hanscom? Does anyone here happen to work at Hanscom that can shine some light on this subject?

I work right outside Hanscom. The only bus is Bus 76, which snakes from Alewife over to MIT Lincoln Labs (and then Hanscom is right up the street). There are stops that go to the base itself, but those are less frequent.

You *might* be able to look online and find VanPools for Hanscom folks. I have seen a few of those in driving up and down Hartwell.
