The shuttle offers a faster, more convenient way to travel between the college and the two major transit hubs serving our community, Jamaica Station and Flushing-Main Street Station. 

The shuttle provides non-stop service throughout the day between the campus and these two ​stations. It also provides cross-campus service between Queens Hall and the Student Union Building.

Queens College Students...All Aboard! 

Undergraduate and graduate students may ride the shuttle by simply displaying a current QCard as identification. No purchase necessary!​
