OCC's main campus spans a total of 280-acres, and sits on a picturesque plot of land on Onondaga Hill. When it comes to getting to and around campus, we're here to help. Here are some things to know about transportation at OCC. 

Lazer Line Shuttle Service

The Lazer Line shuttle system runs on a loop across campus, eliminating long walks, trudging through bad weather, and cumbersome drives to different parking lots. Hop on a bus, take the Lazer Line, and make your way around campus easier than ever before. Plus, the estimated maximum wait time is only 20 minutes! Shuttle services begin on the first day of classes and are available through the last day of final exams.
