Transportation and Automobile Regulations

The Vassar College Transportation Department provides shuttle transportation to JFK, LaGuardia, and Stewart airports at various times during the school year. Weeks prior to the October, winter, spring and summer breaks, the dates and times of the shuttle schedule are sent out in a campus wide email to all students. We also provide a free shuttle service to the Poughkeepsie train station at each of the academic breaks.

Each student is charged a fee for the airport trip. We only provide shuttle service from the campus to the airports; we do not provide shuttles from the airports to the campus. Many companies also offer transportation between Vassar and all major airports in this area.

All student vehicles driven or parked on campus must be registered. The Safety and Security Office (located at 2500 New Hackensack Road) is open on weekdays from 8:30am to 4:30pm for vehicle registration. There is a fee for registering a vehicle that will be charged to your Vassar account.

Cars belonging to first-year students are only allowed in the New Hackensack lot. They are not permitted anywhere else on campus without an unloading pass.

Vassar students are also able to take advantage of Zipcar’s low rate car-sharing program. For more details or to sign up, please go to
