Lafayette College provides students with a free, safe and reliable shuttle bus service connecting the main campus with the Downtown/Williams Arts campus, college athletic fields, and student parking areas.
The LCAT Special shuttle also provides transportation between campus and the Lehigh Valley International Airport (LVIA) on designated days with a reservation immediately prior to and at the conclusion of school breaks.
LCAT shuttles are currently operated by Easton Coach Company and run most days during the academic year. LCAT service is not available over summer or other school breaks.
Reminder: The intersection of McCartney Street and College Avenue lacks a well-defined pedestrian crossing. Pedestrians are encouraged to use pedestrian crossings to the east on Cattell Street (near High Street or Clinton Terrace) to get to the sidewalk on College Avenue in lieu of crossing at the intersection of College Avenue and McCartney Street. See a map here.
A partnership between the College and the Lehigh and Northampton Transit Authority (LANTA) provides transportation at no cost to current students, faculty and staff. LANTA Bus service operates 363 days a year and provides reliable and consistent access to the Easton Bus Terminal, with stops along Cattell Street on College Hill. Route Number 214.
