Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) provides complimentary shuttle service transportation for employees, students, and visitors to and from Main Campus and the Syosset Long Island Railroad station, Uplands Farm, Woodbury Genome Center, and neighboring town of Huntington. The CSHL Shuttle Service is run by the Facilities Department, which is located in the Richards Building. We serve the entire campus community and our scheduled routes are based on average ridership levels. This CSHL shuttle service runs year-round except on observed holidays, Sundays, and or when there are hazardous road conditions due to inclement weather.

The schedule is based on the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) train schedule, and is subject to change.

For inquiries about this shuttle service, or to be added to the notifications mailing list, please email shuttle@cshl.edu.
