During the summer months (June, July, and August) the shuttle runs on a one bus schedule.  There is no service between the Medical Center and Morningside campuses after 7:00 pm.

There is no shuttle service on University holidays.

The schedule is subject to change without notice. The driver will alert passengers as such changes occur.


Public Safety Evening Shuttle Bus

A safe way to get around the Morningside Heights area at night is to use the Public Safety Evening Shuttle Bus Service. Available throughout the year, the 15-passenger van is driven by a uniformed driver and is free to anyone with a valid Columbia Card. The shuttle makes scheduled stops between 6:00 pm - 4:00 am.  Please allow a three-minute overlap before and after each time frame to account for unforeseen conditions. Route is subject to change due to road construction in the area.
