You'll be hard pressed to find a city with more convenient transportation than New York City. The subway runs all over Manhattan, the Bronx, and Brooklyn for two dollars a ride with free transfers to any other mode of transportation in New York City. There's a subway stop right outside the gates of Barnard that is a part of the one and nine red lines. These subway lines run up and down Broadway in Manhattan, all the way down to South Ferry, making stops at important locations, such as Times Square and Penn Station. It's very easy to transfer to other subway lines, like the green line that runs on the east side of Manhattan or the shuttle train to Grand Central Station from Times Square. Penn Station Houses the Long Island Railroad and the New Jersey Railroad that stop at Newark Airport. Buses around Barnard are also very convenient. In fact, the M60, which also stops in front of the campus gates will take you directly to New York's La Guardia Airport in less than one hour. This is very helpful for students on a budget, because it can take you and your bags to the airport for $2 as opposed to $30 or $40 dollars in a taxi.
Barnard students are lucky to have access to the variety of transportation that they have available. The only bad thing about it is that most modes of transportation are expensive, especially cabs and trains. Another bad thing is that most ways of getting anywhere, except for in a cab or to LaGuardia on a bus, involves transferring to a different mode of transportation at some point, which is both time consuming and expensive. The best thing, by far, that Barnard has to offer is the M60 bus to the airport and the 116th Street subway station that is less than three minutes from anywhere on campus.
