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, shopping areas, movie theaters, and student parking areas.

The LCAT Special shuttle also provides regularly-scheduled transportation between campus and the Lehigh Valley International Airport (LVIA) on designated days immediately prior to and at the conclusion of school breaks.
