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.

Buses

Buses from Shortline/COACH USA make four stops on campus every day.

  • Traveling north: A bus departs outside Donovan's Pub daily at 1:25 p.m. and 5:55 p.m. heading to the Utica bus and train station. There, students can transfer to the Amtrak train or other COACH USA buses.
  • Traveling south: A bus departs outside Donovan's Pub daily at 12:05 p.m. and 4:20 p.m. heading to the Binghamton bus station where students may transfer. The bus's final destination is the Port Authority in New York City.

 

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