The BSG and Treasurer’s Office provide subsidized taxi fare to the Old Port in Portland, Maine Mall, and Freeport on all weekends throughout the year. Tickets must be bought in advance with either cash or Onecard at the Smith Union Info Desk. See the schedule below for departure and pickup times.

TAXI:

The BSG has worked with Brunswick Taxi to provide all students free rides anywhere within one mile of campus between 11PM – 1AM on Tuesday and Thursday and 11PM – 2PM on Friday and Saturday.  If you would like a ride, call Brunswick Taxi at 207-729-3688 in the designated hours. For reference, this can bring you out as far as the Brunswick Diner, Joshua’s Tavern, Seadog’s Brewery, and most off-campus housing.

YELLOW BIKE CLUB:

The BSG provides funding for the Yellow Bike Club, a service that allows students to rent bikes for a full semester at a low membership fee. Additionally, members to the club have full access to their bike repair hours. This service is in line with our goals to make Bowdoin a more green and sustainable campus.
