University Transportation Services provide safe, free transportation to all students, faculty, administrators, alumni and staff through the Department of Public Safety.
Our bus system operates seven scheduled routes which connect the Washington Square main campus with Residence Halls, 1st Avenue Medical Corridor, and Tandon School of Engineering. The system generally operates during the fall and spring semesters when classes are in session from 7:30 a.m. to midnight on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 12 midnight on weekends.
Free overnight Safe Ride Van Service is provided 7 days a week when fall and spring semester classes are in session. Safe Ride is a shared ride, on demand van service, intended to provide safe overnight transportation to and from NYU facilities.
A valid NYU ID, Langone ID, or Alumni card is required to board any campus transportation vehicle, and it must be presented to the bus or van operator when boarding. Bus passes are available for guests from residence hall managers or the Department of Public Safety Office at 7 Washington Place.
Please do not eat or drink while on board any vehicle.
Vehicles will pick up and drop off passengers at designated stops only. Drivers are not permitted to allow passengers to board after the door has been closed at a bus stop. This rule is for our passengers’ safety.
Scheduled times may be printed from the Department of Public Safety website at www.nyu.edu/ride. Departure as listed within all timetables are approximate, and due to New York City traffic congestion, your trip may be delayed. Please plan your trip accordingly and allow for sufficient time when riding University Transportation vehicles. Your patience is appreciated when delays occur, and University Transportation apologizes for any such delays that you may encounter.
New York University's Department of Public Safety is committed to providing quality campus transportation services to all members of the NYU community. All buses operated on our scheduled routes are accessible.
There is always a minimum of one accessible van in service during Safe Ride operating hours.
If you are a person with a disability using our service for the first time, do not hesitate to identify yourself as such, as this will help the bus and van operators to better serve you.
