The Queens College Shuttle


To reduce commute time and improve access to campus, Queens College launched a shuttle bus service in 2014. 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 Queens College shuttle operates seven days a week, providing non-stop service throughout the day between the campus and these two stations. It also provides cross-campus service throughout the day between Queens Hall and the Student Union Building.


All Queens College Students Aboard

Any Queens College student may ride the shuttle by displaying a current QCard as identification.


Please note: From Tuesday, August 25, to Tuesday, September 1, QC ID will not be required to board the shuttle bus.

Faculty and Staff Service

Faculty and staff can take advantage of the shuttle by buying and displaying their "pass," a sticker that goes on the college identification card. Stickers can be purchased at Public Safety on the second floor of Jefferson Hall. For more information, click here


New, effective January 4, 2016
General Public Service

Queens College faculty and staff, students enrolled in Professional & Continuing Studies and the English Language Institute, and guests of the college now have the option of purchasing rides on the Queens College Shuttle on a daily, monthly, or semester basis.

Daily service is $6, weekly service is $35, and semester service is $60. Purchasers receive an email containing a QR code—which they can display as a printout or on their smartphone—that will be scanned by shuttle bus drivers. Tickets become effective with the first use: 24 hours for daily tickets, 7 days for weekly passes, and 120 days for semester passes. To make your purchase, click here.
