Riding the CSI Buses

Operational Services manages campus and ferry shuttle transportation for use by Students, Faculty and Staff. The College provides a Campus Loop bus and an Accessibility van for rider who need assistance. Links to the specific schedules are available below. All bus stops can be viewed here on the CSI Campus Map.

Dolphin Card Required for Access to Ferry Shuttle and Loop Bus Services Since with the 2017 Fall semester a valid Dolphin Card with the Transportation Access Code (TAC) has been required for all students, faculty and staff to access the College bus services.  All enrolled students will automatically have TAC embedded in their Dolphin cards.  Faculty & staff who wish to access the service will be required to pay the same fee as our students.  The Transportation Fee is $40 for fall/winter semesters combined, $40 for spring and $10 for each of the two summer sessions.

Faculty and staff who wish to ride the Ferry Shuttle and/or the Loop Bus can remit the fee to the Office of Parking & Dolphin Card Services by visiting the Parking and Dolphin Card Services Office in 3A-106 during business hours, or by using the following link: https://csi-sp.transactcampus.com/eaccounts/

Enter your College FLAS log in, deposit the appropriate fee, and follow the directions to complete the transaction.

Dolphin Card holders with TAC may bring one guest per ride by swiping their Dolphin Card twice.
 
Guests Guests not accompanied by a member of the College community will be permitted access by contacting the Office of Operational Services in advance (email Andrew.Diaz@csi.cuny.edu) and requesting a Visitor Bus Pass. This pass must be printed and presented to the driver when boarding the bus.  Please plan to give at least 24 hours advance notice.

The Office of Parking & DolphinCard Services is responsible for ensuring that every student, faculty and staff member, and visitor to the college who chooses to park and/or operate a motor vehicle on the CSI campus does so in accordance with college policy. The office oversees the sale of parking permits through the vehicle registration program and the enforcement of the college’s parking policies by Public Safety and Parking & DolphinCard Services personnel through the issuance of Traffic and Parking Summonses. 

All college employees and students, including summer, visiting, evening, full-time, part-time, continuing education, etc. are required to purchase a valid CSI parking permit.  Fees from parking permits are utilized for critical maintenance of parking lots, such as salting and snow removal; pothole repairs; resurfacing, striping, and painting of lots; and campus signage.
