New York University offers a shuttle service between campuses for students and faculty. Since 1998, Coach USA subsidiary Gray Line New York operated the shuttle service. In a restructuring move, Coach USA chose not to continue operating the shuttle after May 2010. A new contract was signed with Academy Bus Lines to operate the shuttle.[1]
