hello

I am looking to attend nassau community college and was wondering if it would be feasible to commute from manhattan to the school using public transportation? If anyone has an estimate or experience on how long it would take it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance.

It is doable BUT, it isn't timely. You would take the LIRR to the Hempstead train station and then take the bus from there to NCC. This option would be a bit on the expensive side too. Or you could take the subway to Jamaica and then the bus, either way I would guess it would be a very long commute, at best if connection times were perfect at least 70 minutes each way probably more like 90 each way given the schedules of the bus and trains.

There's no real good way to get from the train to NCC. It's not near a train station.

The cheapest way is to take the (F) train to 179th Street, and then take the N22, N22A, or N24 bus to the Roosevelt Field Mall. From there, you could take the N16, N35, N43, or N51 to the college (I would recommend a monthly MetroCard if you are doing this daily)

You can also take the N6 from Jamaica to Hempstead, and then take the N16 or N35 to the college.

Or, if you want to spend more money for a faster ride, you could take the LIRR to Hempstead for the N16 or N35.
