Public Transportation Information
We are looking forward to meeting you at Orientation and hope that you are excited to take the next step in your life. We understand that there may be some of you who plan to come to Orientation via public transportation, therefore, we wanted to provide you with some assistance.

Campus Shuttle (Gael Express):
During the academic year, the campus runs a free campus shuttle to the New Rochelle Transit Center. This shuttle does not run regularly during the summer. However, if students express a need for the shuttle to aid with transportation before and after Orientation, the College will work to accommodate these needs. If you will need the campus shuttle and plan to arrive at the New Rochelle Transit Center between 7:30 and 9:00 a.m. on your Orientation day, please respond to this email with your full name and arrival time. Remember check-in is from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. The Orientation program begins with breakfast between 9 - 10 a.m. You must respond at least three business days before your scheduled Orientation if you will need the campus shuttle service. The College will work to accommodate your travel needs during the scheduled time. If needed, the shuttle will return students to the New Rochelle Transit Station immediately after Orientation.
