Wheels on the Bus Roll to Wegmans and Walmart

Print More

In addition to making new academic schedules, living in new residence halls and meeting new friends on campus, Cornell students can expect new services from TCAT Buses this semester. Not only did TCAT introduce two new routes to make getting around Ithaca easier for Cornell students and staff, the company also created an ID Card system which will scan Cornell IDs rather than checking for stickers to see if students and staff have a bus pass. The data is stored on a magnetic strip, similar to a credit card. It contains the user’s affiliation (student, faculty or staff) as well as specifying the time and the day of the week the card can be used as a pass.
The new routes include Route 28 and Route 34. Route 28 offers service to Wegmans and Walmart. It leaves the Hasbrouck Apartments every hour from 3:40 p.m. to 6:40 p.m., stopping at North Campus, West Campus, Collegetown and Seneca Street.
Route 34 offers weekday service from North Campus to the Pyramid Mall. It starts at Balch Hall and Cradit Farm at 3:09 p.m., RPCC at 3:12 p.m. and arrives at the Mall at 3:33 p.m. It runs every 30 minutes. The last bus gets back to Balch Hall and Cradit Farm at 10:09 p.m. and RPCC at 10:12 p.m.
