Travel to and from CSI is a lot easier this semester thanks to a free nonstop shuttle bus service between the campus and the Staten Island ferry terminal in St. George. Riders will simply need a valid CSI or CUNY ID to take advantage of this convenient new service.
When classes are in session, the first shuttle to the CSI campus will leave the ferry terminal at 7:05am each weekday morning to the CSI campus and then depart every half-hour. At the ferry terminal, passengers can access the shuttle bus at the Upper South Lobby Passenger Pickup. To reach this location, take the stairs or elevator opposite Ramp A. The last shuttle from the ferry to CSI will leave at 10:35pm.
The first shuttle to the ferry will leave the CSI campus from the Great Lawn side of the Center for the Arts at 7:35am each weekday morning. The last shuttle will depart from the CSI campus to the ferry terminal at 11:05pm.
When the College is open, but classes are not in session, buses will run once every hour, departing the ferry at :05 and CSI at :35.
The shuttle is the result of a very successful pilot program last March. During the test period, some students reported that the shuttle service cut as much as 30 minutes each way. Besides, offering a convenient alternative to driving to the campus, the shuttle will also improve the traffic and air quality situations on the Island, as fewer cars will be on the Borough’s congested roads.
