Students residing in College or privately owned off-campus housing must register their motor vehicles with the City of Easton Traffic Division and with Lafayette College Public Safety.
Public Safety is responsible for the enforcement of the Lafayette College motor vehicle and traffic regulations.
Students who wish to appeal parking citations (tickets) must do so within five business days of the issuance of the citation. Failure to appeal the citation within the above time period may result in the loss of the right of appeal. All appeals must be filed prior to the start of the year-end finals. Note: Red Tow-Away Zone violations cannot be appealed.
To be eligible for medical transport services students need the approval of Bailey Health Center, Athletic Trainer, or Disability Services.
Students requesting medical transports from Public Safety are required to call Public Safety (610-330-5330) to request a ride no later than 20 minutes prior to the desired pick up time. The dispatcher will advise the requesting student approximately how long it will take for the transport vehicle to arrive at their location.
The Lafayette College Area Transportation (LCAT) shuttles have an expansive schedule that connects the main campus with the College’s athletic fields, the downtown Williams Arts Campus, local shopping areas, movie theaters, and the local bus station. The LCAT Special shuttle also provides transportation between campus and the Lehigh Valley International Airport (LVIA) on designated days. Check out the live online tracking system to see where the LCAT shuttles are right now. You can also access it on your mobile device no matter where you are by clicking the “Shuttle” button on the Lafayette College mobile homepage.
A partnership announced in February 2019 between the College and the Lehigh and Northampton Transit Authority (LANta) provides transportation at no cost to current students, faculty and staff with a valid Lafayette College ID (scanned when boarding). 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 as well as the Giant Plaza and Weis Market in Forks Township using Route Number 214. In addition to these routes, members of the Lafayette community may board any LANta bus, making the entire Lehigh Valley accessible.
LANta bus routes can be viewed online and there is a live bus tracker to see where the bus is in real time. LANta, which operates mostly hybrid buses in the Easton area, also has an easy to use app, available for iPhone and Android.
Two vehicles are available on campus (in designated spots in the lot adjacent to March Field) that can be rented by students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through UHaulCarShare, a leading car share and car club service. These fuel-efficient vehicles can be rented by students, staff, and faculty for a low hourly (or daily) rate depending on your needs.
The availability of the LCAT shuttle and the Car Share program eliminates the need to bring a car to campus during the academic year. By not bringing a car to campus, students reduce their environmental impact and save significant money as compared to car ownership.
Under certain circumstances and with the required authorizations employees, subcontractors, volunteers and students may be approved to drive a College-owned vehicle or a car rented by the College.
The Easton Bus Terminal connects downtown Easton with New York City and other areas via the following bus lines:
Students should check the LCAT schedule to determine the shuttle departure from campus that will get them to the Easton Bus Terminal in time for their connection.
