2018-2019 Schedule

Itinerary Table of Cornell-Phila Bus

  • The order of the stops and departure/arrival times have been adjusted in the Phila area to accommodate for adding a permanent stop at the Amtrak Train Station in Philadelphia, Sats allowing students to arrive to Cornell on time for dinner. Please verify the Bus Schedules for details.
  • In order to shorten the trip time we will not wait for any late students in Phila area unless they notify us by phone. Please use numbers listed in the Contacts section.

  • Estimated arrival times include rest stops. Adjust your pick up time accordingly to road conditions and length of rest stops taken.

  • Additional on Demand (no extra charge) Stop:  Ithaca College Campus in Ithaca, NY (typically for Thanksgiving and Winter trips).

  • For students planning to arrive to University City in Philadelphia. The cost of taxi fare between the Amtrak Train Station and University City at Walnut Street and 34th Street is around $10 to $15 according to Taxi Fare Finder. Please check their site here to estimate the current cost of any taxi ride in Philadelphia. Hint for taxis at 30th Street Station: If the line for a cab is long, and there are no cabs in the queue, walk over to Market Street and hail a cab. Market Street will be to your right as you come out of the station to stand in the cab line.
  • When two or more buses are used we have split routes for them in Phila area. Please board them accordingly to your trip plans following the stops listed in the table below if applicable for the current trip.

It will wait until all students departing in NM, Amtrak and KOP board it.
