Stony Brook commuter students make up nearly 50% of our campus population. With that said, not all commuters arrive to campus via the same mode of transportation. Some drive a personal vehicle, others walk or ride bikes, and plenty of commuter students utilize public transportation services.

Tips & Tricks
Transferring at Jamaica:
- Due to the nature of some train lines, you may have to transfer trains at Jamaica station to reroute to your destination
- You will receive a notice when using the online Trip Planner and will be indicated with a J on timetable brochures
- When your train arrives at Jamaica, the train you must transfer to is almost always immediately across the tracks
- Look for the marquees on the sides of the train to make sure that it is going to the right destination
- You will have ~2 minutes to transfer. In the event that your transfer is not across the platform, listen carefully to hear which track your train is located on
- If you are unsure of which train to transfer to or where the track is located, ask a conductor or employee
