Hey guys,

Kind of freaking out here. I was wondering if NYC cabs will bring me to New Rochelle. I get out of an exam at 7:20 pm at Columbia University and need to catch an 8:15pm New Rochelle train. Please let me know the most efficient way to do this, or if it is not worth trying. Also keep in mind that I would be travelling during the later end of rush hour..

Thanks so much.

A New Rochelle train?

Metro North?

That would be the same as the one leaving from Manhattan.. Get the same Metro North train from 125th Street.

Where are you ultimately going ? Are you trying to get to New Rochelle or get on a train in New Rochelle to go somewhere else ?

Why don't you have a cab take you to the 125th st metro North Station ? All trains that go to New Rochelle or eventually beyond New Rochelle first go through 125th st and you can get there in 10 mins in a cab from Columbia.

You would have better luck booking a cab service. The yellow cabbies would do it if you paid them a flat charge with meter off or if they did meter on and you gave them a fat tip. However it will be difficult to convince them to get that far away from downtown manhattan.

Then its still going to be quicker to take a cab from Columbia to 125th st.
At 125th st. jump on the new haven line to New Rochelle. You can buy a ticket on the train from the conductor. The best thing is - it delivers you right to New Rochelle train station....

Check the timetables on amtrak's website: Amtrak - Timetables

Most of them do stop in NYC like Bluedog mentioned.
