Shuttle Bus

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 and accessible shuttle service between the Rome and Utica campuses five days a week, when traffic between the two is greatest. Transit time is estimated at 30 minutes one way. To ride, you must present your MVCC ID. 

The shuttle in the Spring 2021 will run on Mondays only.
