*The Thanksgiving Tuesday departure date conflicts with 3 prelims scheduled for the evening. Please review your schedule. We apologize for not being able to accommodate every student in our trip schedule.
Please note that the buses fill up in early fall.
We do not issue paper tickets; instead we board by passenger list. Students must present a student I.D. to board the bus.
From Cornell University
The bus picks students up at North Campus near Robert Purcell Community Center at 101 Jessup Road , West Campus at Baker Flagpole, and Collegetown in front of the Center for Theatre Arts.
Please arrive at the bus stop 15 minutes before departure to board. Look for the “CB-Bus” sign on the dashboard of the bus.
Westfield Montgomery Mall
7101 Democracy Boulevard, Bethesda, MD 20817. The bus stops at parking lot behind the Shell Gas Station (at the corner of Democracy Blvd. And Westlake Dr.) across from the Macy's outdoor parking lot.
Directions to parking lot: Enter Westfield Montgomery from Democracy Blvd. and bear left. The busses will drop-off and pick-up students from the parking lot located after the gas station on your left. It is the parking lot farthest from Macy's and facing Westlake Drive on the outskirts of the mall property.
Westfield Montgomery is a private property and has been permitting the charter bus to load and unload on its premises. Please return this favor by patronizing the mall shops and restaurants. It is important that we do not adversely affect mall traffic (particularly during the holiday seasons) or we may not be able to use this facility in the future.
Pick-up and Drop-off Information
Please be at the bus stop 15 minutes before departure for loading. Look for the “Bethesda, MD” sign on the bus.
