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. Click Campus to Campus Guidelines for more information.
