I grew up in Westchester and went to Columbia.

The Westchester Transit's Bee bus line has a dozen buses daily from the small Westchester County Airport to the White Plains Metro North station. The bus fare is $2.75.

The Harlem Rail line goes from White Plains to 125th Street in Harlem a few times a day for $8.75.

The Metro North Transit Hub lets you off on the East side, Columbia University is on Broadway the Westside. There are many cross town buses, on 125th Street probably every :10 for $2.75.

It is less than 2 miles from the rail to Columbia, a :20 walk for us. It is more than :20 by M60 bus.

Personally, if I had a lot of luggage or were traveling in the evening off hours I could rent a car at the airport and return it in NYC or call a car service. Enterprise, Hertz and many other rentals are in the terminal.
