As the summer comes to a close and a new Academic Year begins, we’re announcing some changes to the Evening Shuttle service that will take effect Monday, August 30. 

Fall 2021 schedules are now available for the Intercampus, Commuter, Lamont, and Manhattanville Loop shuttles.

Promo codes used over the Spring and Summer terms to activate free Columbia University Evening Shuttle rides in the Via app are about to expire. If you plan to use the service during Fall term, please follow the instructions below.

Additional stops, one discontinued stop, and one stop location change will be implemented on September 1 for the Fall semester.

Columbia was recognized as the runner-up in the Commute Options category from the  Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT). The ACT’s national awards ceremony took place at its annual international conference held this year at Walt Disney World Resort, Florida.

As the closure of 169th Street ends, pick-ups and drop-offs on the George Washington Bridge/Fort Lee shuttle will return to their original locations. Effective Monday, June 14, stop locations will be as follows:

Changes across Columbia Transportation's services for the summer term are listed below.

Citi Field has given notice that they will not allow the Commuter Shuttle to stop at the Citi Field lot due to sporting events taking place throughout the spring, summer, and fall. 

Please note the summer Intercampus Shuttle schedule and an update on the Hoboken Shuttle, effective June 1.

The prior capacity restriction on Columbia shuttle buses was recently removed in an effort to better accommodate the volume of Columbia affiliates returning to a reopening campus.

Beginning Monday, May 17, Commuter Shuttle schedules will be reduced for the summer session.

Due to this year’s abridged Spring Term, the on-demand Evening Shuttle (powered by Via) will begin summer operations on Saturday, May 1. The service will run from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. each evening in the summer.

In keeping with health and safety guidance from Columbia’s COVID-19 Task Force, the On-Demand Evening Shuttle service, powered by Via, is transitioning to the shared ride model that was intended at its outset.

Snowfall has tapered off, with the National Weather Service predicting mixed precipitation until 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 19 and additional snow accumulations of up to one inch and ice accumulations of a light glaze in the city and surrounding areas.
