Public transit is a safe, reliable way to commute between campuses or get around the Binghamton area. The cost of public transportation is included in the BAP program fee.
BAP students do not need a car to travel between Binghamton and Broome. Students can ride the Broome County Transit buses at no charge by using their Binghamton ID card. For the most direct service between campuses, take BC Transit Route #9 that runs hourly from 7:25 a.m.- 6 p.m. For complete details about this bus transportation option, including route maps and schedules, visit Broome County Transit.
Note: BC Transit will continue to provide service between the two campuses as scheduled and is working with Broome County to meet guidelines for safe transport. Should major changes in course scheduling occur, Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) will work with BAP and SUNY Broome to adjust buses accordingly.
Bap students can also use, at no charge, OCCT a Binghamton University student-operated service. OCCT offers a campus shuttle that continuously loops the main Binghamton campus, stopping at multiple locations from 7 a.m.- 12:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. For more information on the campus shuttle or other OCCT service, visit the OCCT website.
Both Broome County Transit and OCCT have GPS tracking devices linked to applications that display where the buses are at all times. Students can download the free ETA SPOT application to their phones. For Broome County Transit service, students can download the free DoubleMap bus tracking application.
