Yeshiva University emailed students on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 to notify them that “the shuttle is now operating additional inter-campus routes…[t]he shuttle is open for current students, and if space allows, for faculty and staff.”  

After months of reduced shuttle times due to COVID-19, the intercampus shuttle has slowly been adding more available times. Additionally, local shuttles have continued to be suspended.  

The announcement has been relieving to students who do not feel comfortable traveling between campuses in the evening and at night either on the subway or in an Uber. Cayla Muschel (SCW ‘23) expressed to the YU Observer, “I think it’s great that YU is providing extended shuttle hours. It’s not safe to take public transportation at night and who hasn’t needed to do some late night studying or event planning on the other campus?”  Racheli Jian (SCW ‘25) echoed her sentiment, stating, “I think it’s really useful because it relieves the worry of having to take the subway or an uber late at night.”

Students on the Wilf campus also expressed satisfaction with the decision to expand the shuttle hours. On student (YC ‘23) who wishes to remain anonymous shared with the YU Observer “While to those outside of the YU family the increased shuttle times might seem inconsequential, to those of us who are a part of the family this means so much more. By increasing the shuttle times YU has made a statement that even as the world still has some concerns over what comes next, YU will always do their best to bring normalcy back to their students. Around 18 months removed from the first shut down , we are truly back to seeing our friends, going to Macs games, and just having a normal life; vitally important things during the constantly changing times around us” 

Some students still felt there was more room for improvement in the offered shuttle times. Marcela Homsany (SCW ‘24) told the YU Observer, “I love the idea of more shuttle times- it gives me more of an opportunity to be involved as the times are now working with my schedule. I wish there were earlier times than 5:45 though.”

The updated shuttle schedule is as follows:
