The Office of Student Living and College Engagement employs certified student van drivers to shuttle Utica students from campus to the local Sangertown Square Mall and Walmart in New Hartford on Commercial Drive. Shuttles will also bring students to the train station on weekends if requested in the SLCE office in advance. The schedule changes according to the drivers' availability, but an updated schedule can be found on the bulletin board outside the 205 Strebel office door, or at the link below.

Coach USA provides a service to popular college-towns at very reasonable rates to college communities. Shortline is the name of the route that travels from Utica, NY to NY, NY and almost anywhere in between. Check online for maps that list the destinations along the Shortline route. These tickets are non-refundable; however, they are good for 30 days past the purchase date (which appears on the ticket), so if the traveler misses the bus, they can catch the next one. Buses leave from the Strebel bus stop on campus every day at 11:00am and 5:00pm. The bus may be late, but DO NOT ever leave the bus stop, they WILL NOT wait for you.
