Transportation Services is designed to help students get to connecting transportation centers so they can continue their travel to their final destination

St. Lawrence ID is required as well as your train, bus, or airline ticket valid of the day of travel!

Passengers may experience a reasonable wait time.

Our goals are to provide efficient transportation services for our campus community and maintain a service that is environmentally responsible.

One large suitcase and one carry-on per person will be permitted due to limited space.

(Baggage limit will be enforced due to limited luggage space in the vans)

If you are scheduled by Transportation Services to meet at a specific time at Safety and Security, you MUST be there on time as other students may be traveling on the same shuttle and a delay in departing may cause them to miss their connecting transportation.

The driver will wait no more than 15 minutes at the Safety and Security Office before departing.

If you miss your scheduled transportation, you will have to make other arrangements with Transportation Services (which could be up to 24 hours or go on the next available shuttle)

Remember when planning your travel arrangements:

We have no control over the weather and student safety is our main concern. If it is unsafe to travel you would have to either remain on campus another day (if departing) or stay the night where you arrived (if returning).

When traveling make sure you allow sufficient travel time, plus your time for check in

Syracuse/ Montreal/Plattsburgh 4 to 4.5 hours

Ottawa 3 to 3.5 hours

Watertown/Saranac Lake/Brockville/Massena 2.5 to 3 hours
