Getting To Campus

Carnegie Mellon is located in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh, approximately 20 miles from the Greater Pittsburgh International Airport. There is a public bus service (PATransit, Bus #28X) directly from the airport to the Carnegie Mellon campus. The bus departs from the lower level of the airport. The final stop the bus makes is in front of Morewood Gardens Residence Hall on the Carnegie Mellon campus. Please visit the PAT website for more information.

Adults $3.75
Children (6 to 11) $1.85
Children (5 & under) Free

Drivers do not carry change, so be prepared with exact change when boarding the bus (in small bills and coins). The trip takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes depending on the time of day. Taxi service from the airport is also available at all times and will cost about $50 to Oakland. The taxi should be metered and a tip of 10-15% of the cost on the meter is normally expected.

An alterative to the bus is the SuperShuttle.  One-way fare from the airport to campus ranges from $27.00 to $36.00.
