SUNY Cortland Transportation Services maintains an over-the-road fleet of vans and sedans, a fleet of buses for transportation on campus as well as for field trips, and a full service garage to maintain the campus fleet of approximately 100 service vehicles, including department-assigned vehicles, 26 GemCar electric-powered vehicles, snow plow trucks, pickups, tractors and a vast array of grounds-keeping equipment.
Over-the-road vehicles may be reserved by campus employees conducting approved college travel using a departmental account for payment. You may click here for the form to make a reservation. Please also review these pages regarding eligibility to use a campus vehicle and here to see the acceptable range of operation of campus vehicles. All faculty and staff will have their vehicle license status checked on the New York State LENS program prior to receiving the keys for a campus vehicle. When demand for campus vehicles exceeds availability, campus employees should rent a vehicle adhering to the campus rental car guidelines. SUNY Cortland is also affiliated with ZipCar if you prefer to utilize this service.
Campus buses operate on a 5-10 minute schedule during classes throughout the school year, providing transportation to students, faculty and staff. Click here for the semester schedule. You may also download TracManager to your cell phone (IOS or Android) to determine the location of the buses on their daily routes.
In addition to on-campus busing, on a limited basis we also offer bus reservations for field trips within 200 miles of campus, for college organizations and departments. Costs are based on mileage driven as well as waiting time for drivers. To access a bus reservation form, please click here.
All of the above-referenced forms may also be accessed on the Forms section of this page. For information or helping regarding busing needs or fleet vehicle reservations call 753-2129
