Shuttle Bus Service

For your convenience and safety, the college offers several ways to get to and from the subways at all times. 

The CCNY Campus Shuttle Bus service is one continuous loop that runs in a figure 8 pattern between the two subway stations - 145th and St. Nicholas Abenue Train and 125th and St. Nicholas Avenue.  On campus loading/unloading will take place in front of the Marshak Building.  The combined route will leave from the Marshak Building along Convent Avenue in both directions, going either northerly to the 145th Street station and then returning to campus, or in a southerly direction to the 125th Street station and then returning to campus. The shuttle busses will return directly to the Marshak Building after each pick-up at the 145th station or the 125th station.

Evening Escort Services will run from 11:00 PM to 6:45 AM, with stops at the Towers Residence Hall.  Call (212) 650-6911 for information. 

The shuttle will no longer operate on holidays or on days that classes are cancelled.

What is NextBus@CCNY? NextBus is a new information system to track and report on the current positions and arrival predictions of City College shuttle buses. With the new NextBus information system, students, faculty and staff will be able to know when the next shuttle bus will arrive. Our CCNY buses are now equipped with GPS devices that will allow for real-time tracking the bus routes. You may find out more by click on: GETTING THERE.

How do I view the current locations and arrival times of the buses?  At a display monitor--one located in the Marshak Building by the main entrance, and a second terminal in the    NAC Building entrance, next to the security guard podium.
