Transportation Off Campus

  • I work or study on campus late at night. Is there any transportation available to get me home after the bus service has ended?

    Yes. There are a few options for you here, such as RPI’s Red Hawk Shuttle Service. You can find out more about their routes and times by calling 518-276-6616 or visit their website . In addition, there are the Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) buses. With a valid Rensselaer photo ID you can ride all CDTA buses for FREE! You can see the CDTA schedule by going to their website. Finally, you can request a safety escort from Public Safety by calling (518) 276-6656. Public Safety will provide a point-to-point off-campus Safety Escort within a five minute radius of the campus from 5:00pm to 1:00am, Monday through Friday.
