As Mohawk Valley Community College’s enrollment has grown in recent years, so have the transit needs of students at its Rome and Utica campuses. The college now has several strategies to help students and visitors find ample parking and alternatives to driving.
A partnership between MVCC and Birnie Bus provides free, direct shuttle service between the Rome and Utica campuses on Tuesdays and Thursdays, when traffic between the two is greatest. Transit time is estimated at :30 one way. Shuttle riders must show their MVCC IDs.
- Departures from Rome’s Plumley Complex: 7:20 a.m., 11:20 a.m., 4:20 p.m., and 9:20 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays.
- Departures from Utica’s Payne Hall traffic circle: 8 a.m., noon, 5 p.m., and 10 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays.
* Last day buses run for the Fall 2013 semester is December 12. The Spring schedule will be coming soon.

MVCC has set up an online Carpool Board for people who wish to communicate with each other to set up carpools. The tool is now live at the “Carpool Board” link. Students, faculty and staff can post whether they wish to give others a ride or seek a ride themselves.
