Lamont Shuttle Schedule & Route Map

Before using the interactive route map and Shuttle schedule below, please familiarize yourself with the Shuttle route and stop locations.

Columbia faculty and staff can park at Columbia’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory campus in Palisades, NY for a nominal fee and ride the free Lamont-Doherty Shuttle to and from campus. Learn more here



The route shown on the map includes all stops that the Lamont Shuttle makes throughout the day.  As the Shuttle does not stop at every stop on every run, please use the map to get directions or refer to the schedule to ensure you choose the correct route.

  • When searching for directions using the maps, the system will only search times for the routes you have showing on the map. To search all available routes and times, ensure that all routes are visible.
  • The shuttle is tracked live via GPS. A moving bus icon on the map will show you where the shuttle is in real-time.
