The Big Red Shuttle

Big image

We are excited to present the Big Red Shuttle, Cornell's first free late-night transportation service for students who need a safe ride home.

Initially, the Big Red Shuttle provided students with rides during exam periods. However, the need for additional means of late-night transportation has become clear. Now, the Big Red Shuttle is no longer an academic-only resource, but one that provides timely and free transportation to Cornell students everywhere in need of a safe ride home.

Starting Friday, 10/14 , the Big Red Shuttle will run a 20-minute route every Friday and Saturday night from 12am-3am with a professional driver and two student aids trained by Cayuga's Watchers.

To learn more, please see the poster below. Check out our website Have questions? Feel free to drop us a note at
