The most direct way to CUMC from most locations is to follow directions leading to the George Washington Bridge, then exit onto the Henry Hudson Parkway, and 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 Fort Washington Avenue; then turn right to enter the Medical Center parking garage.
Take the A, C, or 1 subway to 168th Street.
Take the M2, M3, M4, M5, or M100 bus to the Columbia University Medical Center. For additional bus and subway information, call the Metropolitan Transit Authority at (718) 330-1234. Fares at this time are $2.75 for both the subway and bus. Buses require either a MetroCard (which can be purchased at all subway stations) or exact change; bills are not accepted.
