Transportation Outline

The Wells College Transportation Department is dedicated to enriching the student experience outside of the main campus.  Whether it is transporting students to off campus classes, internships, bus stations and airports or immersing them in the fun activities that the Finger Lakes has to offer, we strive to provide these services in a timely and safe manner.  Below are the services that we currently provide.  We are always finding new ways to become more efficient and expand our services.  There are exciting new services being introduced this Fall 2018 semester.

Daily Ithaca Shuttle

This is a daily service that brings students to the Ithaca area for various amenities and entertainment.  Students interested in wanting to participate need to come to the Transportation Department located in Bellinzoni building.  In the entryway there is a log book that highlights the times and locations that this service will be active.  Students must fill out when they wish to leave Wells and when they wish to return.  Students that do not sign up for a return time and plan on staying in Ithaca overnight must annotate that on the form.
