TCAT BUS:  You may need to take a bus to get to your workplace, across campus, or to and from one of the parking lots.  Employees (including temporary employees on the university payroll), can ride TCAT buses free of charge Monday-Friday on the Cornell campus and among Cornell facilities located downtown and near the airport (normally $1.50). Must present Cornell ID card at fare box.



You may have interviewed at a quiet time of day or at a time when classes were out; roads can be congested at rush hours, between classes, or due to events.
