News & Announcements

As part of our continual effort to optimize service, we’ve expanded the coverage area for the Evening Shuttle (powered by Via).

Starting January 10, 2022, the Manhattanville Loop shuttle, which runs between the Manhattanville and Morningside Heights campuses, will operate from 7:20 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. on weekdays throughout the academic year, including summer.

As the end of the year draws near, we’re writing to make sure you are aware of adjustments to the Intercampus and Lamont shuttles during winter break.

Beginning Wednesday, December 1, Evening Shuttle service will begin at 4:00 P.M. for the winter season. Corner-to-corner service will run from 4:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. and door-to-door service will run from 8:00 P.M. to 3:00 A.M. 

Columbia University added 15 parking spaces to the park and ride program at its Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory campus, bringing the total to 36 spaces. The program allows Columbia employees living in the Rockland County area to give up their car commute to Columbia’s Morningside and Manhattanville campuses by parking at Lamont and catching the free Columbia Transportation shuttle.

Beginning Wednesday, December 1, the Studebaker North stop on the Intercampus and Lamont shuttles (currently located at 3258 Broadway) will be moved to the North side of 131st Street to 3270 Broadway, in front of the No Parking sign seen in this image.

The information below is provided to support your decision-making and to encourage Columbia affiliates to make environmentally responsible decisions in this time of change.

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.
