Transportation Services

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. Please also review eligibility to use a campus vehicle and acceptable range of operation of campus vehicles (200 driving miles). 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. You may also download TracManager to your cell phone (IOS or Android) to determine the location of the buses on their daily routes.
