Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

View all previous student authors

Because Lehman is a commuter school, you can probably ask any student about a means of transportation to campus, and he or she will undoubtedly have 10 different options on how to get there. And because the College is located in the Bronx, transportation resources are plentiful. There are several trains and buses that take students to Lehman’s campus. The 4 train stops at Kingsbridge and Bedford Park Boulevard. The D train also stops at Kingsbridge and Bedford Park Boulevard, but along Grand Concourse.

There are also nine buses that students can take to get to Lehman, and those include the BX 2, BX 10, BX 22, BX 28, BXM4A, BXM4B, the Westchester 20 or 20X buses, and the number 4 from Yonkers.
