Party Buses Aren’t Just for Prom
Written by Bwog Staff
Remember when you were a senior in high school (just last June for you freshpeople!), and you and your friends panicked over who would ride in your limo/stretch Hummer/party bus to prom? Well, Columbia has a new party bus for ya, and the fine people of Public Safety are offering it FREE OF CHARGE (no guarantees that it’ll be free of the teenage angst, though). Check out Columbia’s new evening public safety shuttle! It’s available between 6 PM and 4 AM. You’ll never have to call a cab from Cannons again.
To the Columbia Community:
I am writing to tell you about a new shuttle bus service which will be introduced in the Morningside Heights area for Columbia University community members early in the Fall 2011 semester. This new shuttle service, which will replace point-to-point vehicular escorts, will utilize two shuttle buses traveling on different routes, in thirty minute loops across the Morningside and Manhattanville areas.
The evening shuttle service will operate seven days a week from 6PM every evening until 4AM the following morning. We believe that the evening shuttle service will provide a safe and efficient method for traveling around the Morningside Campus area during the evening hours. A copy of the evening shuttle bus schedule which contains both a map of the routes and a listing of the stops on each of the two separate routes can be found on the Public Safety website at http://www.columbia.edu/cu/publicsafety/.
For those who prefer, Public Safety’s walking escort service, which sends two specially trained students to walk you to your door, will continue to be available seven nights a week from 8PM to 3AM. We encourage you to take advantage of both of these services.

All the best,
