The college provides shuttle service to and from the Buffalo airport as well as the greyhound station and Depew Amtrak train station when college residences close for vacations. The fee is $20 per trip for the shuttles listed below. Students should sign up as early as possible utilizing the form on this page, but at least one week prior to arrival/departure to reserve a seat. Contact Kim Cockle at 585.567.9220 or email@example.com with further questions.
Shuttle process: The shuttles are College Fleet vehicles driven by College students, grad students, and employees that have completed the campus certification process; it is not a professional driving service. In order for a shuttle to take place, a College Fleet vehicle needs to be secured as well as reaching out to find an available driver.
Regular shutltes are offered evenings or mornings that residence halls close and classes are not in session as it is difficult to find drivers that are available during business hours while classes are in session. Please keep this in mind when scheduling your flight.
Please keep in mind that it takes about 1.5 hours to get to the bus/train station and airport.
Please complete the form below to sign up for any regularly scheduled shuttles.
