Most students say that transportation in and around Ithaca is very convenient, although schedules take some time to get used to. The TCAT bus system provides shuttle services between central and other parts of campus, as well as to downtown Ithaca, the mall, and Wegman’s grocery store. Bus passes are free for first-year and transfer students, but even paying for a bus pass is relatively affordable.
Cornell is a large campus, and for those who don’t want to walk a lot, buses are much easier than cars for getting to and from class. Transportation out of Ithaca is relatively simple, and those wishing to travel by bus may do so through Greyhound, Shortline, or Swarthout Coaches—these lines will pick students up right on campus. Unfortunately, Ithaca’s airport is very small, so if you need to fly to a remote domestic location, you’ll have to travel an extra hour to Syracuse Regional Airport.
