How to Use the Tools on This Page
The Intercampus shuttle runs Monday through Friday, excluding University holidays. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please keep in mind that shuttle times are approximate and are subject to traffic.
All shuttles are wheelchair accessible and free for people with disabilities, the elderly, and individuals with service animals.
These interactive maps show you where the shuttle stops along its route. Use your mouse to hover over the stops to see a photo of where pick-up/drop-off is, and a description of the location.
During the academic year, the Intercampus shuttle is serviced by 3 buses and is divided into red, blue and green tables to show different service throughout the day. Read the tables from left to right and then loop to the next row to determine departure and approximate arrival times. For example, if you know you need to get to Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) by 11:00am from 116th Street, you should take the "116 N" shuttle at 10:35am, which will arrive at CUMC a little before 10:53am.
Italicized stop times denote soft stops; shuttle only stops at passenger's request or if someone is waiting at the stop.
This calculator will help you determine the next shuttle to depart from your location, and how long your route will take you so you can estimate your arrival time. Select you current location from the left drop-down list and your destination from the right drop-down. Use in conjunction with the schedules to pick stop location names that correspond with the current time of day.
The summer schedule begins Tuesday, May 26. Download the schedule.

Rider Count System
Effective April 9, 2012: All Intercampus Shuttle buses will be outfitted with a SmartTrack: Passenger Intelligence Rider Count System. This system will allow the Transportation department to capture accurate ridership data for the shuttle in real time, which will help improve service and ensure that access to the shuttle bus is limited to only the intended ridership.
