Bear right as you approach the bridge and take the exit for the Henry Hudson Parkway south. The New England Thruway (I-95) becomes the Cross Bronx Expressway. Proceed as above. Take the Saw Mill River Parkway south or the Cross County Parkway west to the Henry Hudson Parkway south.

Trains and buses arrive at New York's Grand Central Station, Pennsylvania Station, or Port Authority Bus Terminal, from which you can take public transportation or a taxi north to campus.
Five bus lines (M4, M5, M11, M60, M104) and one subway line (the No. 1 local) serve the Columbia neighborhood. The M60 bus is a direct link between the campus and LaGuardia Airport. When taking the subway, the Columbia stop is 116th Street. Do not take express trains Nos. 2 and 3, which eventually follow a different route and do not stop at Columbia University. If you take these express trains, be certain to transfer at 96th Street to the No. 1 local. Google Maps provides a helpful guide to navigating the city using public transportation.
If you are arriving at LaGuardia, Kennedy, or Newark airport, taxi service is available to campus, and bus service is available to Grand Central Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal. The M60 city bus can be taken directly from LaGuardia Airport to Columbia.
