Directions and Travel Information


      • Travel Tips:
        A variety of transportation choices are available. However, taxis are generally the most convenient and safest. Please consider whether luggage, etc., will make travel on public transportation too difficult. Also, please be aware that only licensed yellow and Boro (green) taxis may legally solicit customers with offers of transportation. Use official taxi stands whenever possible, especially at airports.

      • Public Transportation:
        Within New York City: take the A, C, or #1 subway to 168th Street, or take the M2, M3, M4, M5, or M100 bus to CUMC. For additional bus and subway information, visit the Metropolitan Transit Authority website. For details about traveling to and from area airports only, call 1-800-AIRLINK.

      • Automobiles:
        The most direct way to the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center (CPMC) from most locations is to follow directions leading to the George Washington Bridge, then exit onto the Henry Hudson Parkway, and then onto Riverside Drive (south). From there, continue south and turn left onto 165th Street (the first left south of the bridge). Proceed one block and turn right onto Ft. Washington Avenue, then turn right into the Medical Center parking garage.
