Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Campus-to-Campus bus in operation?
Campus-to-Campus bus service is suspended until further notice. There is no higher priority to Cornell University Transportation and Delivery Services than the safety and well-being of our customers and employees. We value your patronage and appreciate your patience while we adjust to the realities of this public health issue. If this suspension causes hardship for Cornell University mission-critical travel, please contact us at 607-254-8747. Visit c2cbus.com for further service updates and notifications.
Will students in Ithaca have TCAT access using their CU ID card?
Yes. Returning students have the opportunity to purchase a discounted OmniRide bus pass, and incoming students receive automatic, no-fee OmniRide bus pass privileges valid within their first academic year. Student bus access information can be found at Getting Around the Cornell Campus.
Will there be any changes to the TCAT schedule?
Find the most up-to-date information on service, routes and holiday scheduling changes on the TCAT website.
How often are TCAT buses cleaned and disinfected?
TCAT is taking as many precautions as possible to protect its riders and employees during the pandemic, and has provided details about their procedures on their COVID-19 webpage.
I no longer need my parking permit/bus pass. Can I get a refund?
For the fall semester, OmniRide bus privilege cancellations and permit returns (for fall semester students) were accepted until November 1, 2020. The spring semester deadline for OmniRide bus privilege cancellations and permit returns (employee annual and student spring/summer semester permits) is March 31, 2021. Prepaid fees will be refunded based on the current Transportation Services refund policy; payroll installments may take up to a full pay-cycle to end.
