Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I ride?

Currently, you can ride within the campus limits and to and from the JFK/UMass T Stop. We are looking to add additional parking locations in the near future. If you try to park the device outside of the service area you will be notified and will continue to be charged for the ride until you return the device to a parking location.

Where do I park?

You can view the parking locations below or in the Wheels mobile app. You are only allowed to park devices in identified areas.

How do I pay?

You will either prepay when signing up for the semester pass through this website, or pay per ride within the Wheels mobile app by adding a credit card to your account.

How do I add more credits to my account?
