Located in Coop, the agency offers discounted bus tickets for daily travel to New York City, Binghamton, Utica, and other local destinations, as well as shuttles to and from the Syracuse airport during major breaks.


Due to COVID 19, COACH USA is not offering transportation to and from Colgate University at this time. 

Students wait for the bus outside of James C. Colgate Hall with their luggage.


Purchases made at the Travel Agency in the Coop can only be made with:

  • Cash
  • Check
  • ’Gate Card

It is possible to purchase a ticket at the bus, but you will not receive Colgate's discounted price.
