Hofstra Shuttle


The MTA has announced that the new Long Island Rail Road schedules will be going live on Monday, February 27th. These changes are taking place due to the opening of the new Grand Central Madison terminal. 

The Transportation division of Public Safety has been preparing for these changes for several months and has created new train shuttle schedules, for both Hempstead and Mineola runs, based on the new LIRR schedules. Our shuttle drivers have been reviewing the new schedules for the past few weeks in preparation of the transition. 

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the new train shuttle schedules provided below ahead of the February 27th launch.

For additional information regarding the impact on your commute and to view the new LIRR schedules,  please visit the LIRR website

Any questions can be directed to Jovanni Ortiz at

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this transition period.

Night Shuttle

We are pleased to announce an expansion of our shuttle service for students – the Night Shuttle.

The shuttle will run through the neighborhoods surrounding Hofstra during the overnight hours, from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m., traveling from various points on North and South campus, to local eating and entertainment establishments, and through areas of Hempstead and Uniondale where many students live.  All you need to do is show the driver your Hofstra ID. The shuttle will provide students who work and study late, or who need to travel to off-campus residences and back, with regular and reliable transportation.

You will be able to track the shuttle on your smartphone or online via GPS.  This tool allows you to come out when you know the shuttle is nearby.  The shuttle, either a small white bus or a gray Hofstra passenger van, will run in approximately 30 minute loops and will have regular stops. Depending on the ridership, a second shuttle may be added during peak times to run every 15 minutes.  If you have comments during this time, please send them through the virtual suggestion box.

Track the Hofstra Night Shuttle on your mobile device by downloading the Hofstra Mobile app and viewing the ‘Night Shuttle’ map. On a desktop computer, log into the portal and click the 'Night Shuttle' icon in My Apps.

For questions during shuttle service times, call 516-463-7878.
