The Campus-to-Campus bus sports a new look.

The Campus-to-Campus executive coach service is sporting a fresh new look and – to accommodate the service’s growing popularity – will stop at the southeast corner of the “B” parking lot instead of the Oxley Equestrian Center, as of July 15. The schedule remains the same otherwise.

“Campus-to-Campus has simply outgrown the parking area at the Oxley Equestrian Center, causing congestion during athletic events in the area,” said Joe Lalley, senior director for facilities operations.

Passengers with a permit valid for the “B” parking lot may park with their permit displayed for the duration of their trip. Those without a valid permit will need to purchase temporary parking at http://www.parkmobile.com. Parking can be purchased by the day or for multiple days up to one week. In B lot, parking will cost $6 per day, Monday-Friday; free on Saturdays and Sundays. Most parking permits are valid in B lot. The only staff permits not valid in B lot are A, E, EH, ME, R and WE.

The art on the sides of the buses now “will feature iconic images of New York City and the Cornell campus,” said Clive Howard, design director for marketing in University Communications. “We attempt to illustrate the vibrant connection between the Ithaca and NYC campuses.”

Campus-to-Campus has extended the reservation schedule through Dec. 24. Visit https://c2cbus.fs.cornell.edu:8485/ to book a trip. For more information about the service, visit http://www.c2cbus.com or call 607-254-8747.
