MTA Transportation Advisory:

Tomorrow, on Law School Graduation day, MTA #1 trains traveling north are bypassing the 116th St./Columbia University station (as well as stations at 103rd St., 110th St., 125th St., and 137th St.) between 10:45 a.m. and 3 p.m.  Southbound trains are operating on a normal schedule.

There are a number of options if you or your guests plan to take the subway to campus that day. As well, we have also arranged for a private shuttle bus service to run from 10:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from the 96th street #1 subway station to take graduates, visitors, and guests to the Columbia campus. ​ When you exit the subway, please look for University event hosts in Columbia blue holding signs that say "Columbia Shuttle" who will direct you to the coach buses (which should be marked "Academy").
