Getting to Columbia University
(From the M Social Hotel)
LaGuardia Airport is the closest to the campus; a taxicab ride is about $30 (not including a 18% tip), and the M60 Select Bus Service goes directly from LaGuardia to the campus every half hour for $2.75 (change only). For visitors arriving at any area airport (including Newark International Airport), public transit is available to the Port Authority Bus Terminal (see paragraph above). Coach service and taxicabs are another option; for example, a taxi directly to campus from Kennedy Airport costs approximately $60 (not including a 18% tip).
From Riverside Drive and West 95th Street
Go north on Riverside Drive to 116th Street. Turn right and go two blocks to Broadway and the University’s main gate (which is not open to traffic).
Street parking and local parking garages may be available. The Central Parking System garage is on West 114th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue; Riverside Church Parking Garage is on West 120th Street between Claremont Avenue and Riverside Drive; GGMC Parking is at 512-520 West 112th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.
