The two bus system allows us to run two buses at peak hours of operation Monday through Friday. This allows for a decrease in service provided at times there are generally fewer riders and an increase when there are more. This creates a nuanced system that makes for the most efficient use of the funds, and ensures that we are operating at the lowest cost possible.
The two bus system was implemented at Purchase beginning in the Fall of 2006. The system was made possible by the creation of a new Services fee which includes the combination of Parking and Transportation. The increase in funding resulted in a decrease in fees to students who live on campus and park, but an increase for students who live off-campus and do not park. For more information about the combination of these fees, please visit the Fee Combination pages.
