New Eases Lehman Commute
daytime shuttle is running initially from Monday to Thursday, also
stopping at three Metro North stations on the Harlem line, where
it picks up other students bound from Westchester.
Lehman College students are seen here climbing
on board the new free shuttle service that is now running
between the campus and subway stations in the Wakefield section
of the Bronx, bordering Mount Vernon. These are major transit points
for students traveling by bus from Westchester County.
Plans call for a second shuttle vehicle to begin a scheduled run
later in the semester, similarly serving the Baychester area of
the Bronx, which borders Pelham. The shuttle will eventually expand
service into the evening hours. As the attractive vans pass through
various neighborhoods, an imprinted message also helps publicize
the Colleges toll-free number (1-877-lehman-1).
