Planning Your Route

Getting to Vassar From NYC

The college has spoken with the MTA— they hope for some trains to Poughkeepsie today, Monday, August 29; optimistic about restoring Hudson Line service tomorrow, Tuesday, August 30.  

UPDATE: Metro-North resumes full Hudson Line service on a Sunday Schedule as of 4pm (8/29).

Alternative resources from getting here from New York City include Trailways Bus and Shortline Coach USA.  Trailways stops in New Paltz, so you would need to secure transportation (perhaps arrange for a friend to pick you up, or take a cab.)  According to their website Shortline will be resuming service on Tuesday.

Let us know if you are delayed

Classes to begin as scheduled on Wednesday, August 31. Students unable to arrive on campus in time should contact the Dean of Studies office.
