It’s common to travel to larger cities for second opinions and specialized services. Here are some resources that may help.

Bus

  • The Cornell Campus to Campus Bus is terrific way to get from Ithaca to New York City. It stops at Weill Cornell Medical Center in NYC which is adjacent to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Through generous support from Cornell, we can free book trips for patients (and a companion) who are traveling to NYC for medical appointments.  YOU MUST MAKE RESERVATIONS THROUGH THE CANCER RESOURCE CENTER. More info: Campus to Campus Guidelines.
    Note: Due to Covid, Cornell Campus-to-Campus service is suspended. Their transportation engineering team is changing the air filtration on each bus. They are considering resuming service this summer. Unfortunately, they do not yet know the bus schedule &/or how many trips they will offer per day.
  • Angel Wheels to Heal (formerly known as Angel Bus) assists with ground transportation and provides gas cards.
  • OurBus provides bus service from Ithaca to New York City and many other locations.

  • Corporate Angel Network (seats are regularly available from the Elmira/Corning Airport to NYC)
  • PALS:Free medical flights and patient air transportation
  • Wings Flights of Hope: Wings Flights of Hope flies out of Buffalo, NY to various locations throughout the North East section of the US. The most common destinations flown to are:
