Airport Shuttles

2017-2018

Reservations Required

Airport shuttles are scheduled four times during the year, Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, Spring Recess and the end of school. Due to logistics of scheduling around students itineraries, airport shuttles are provided for departures from campus only. All shuttles leave from the Kline parking lot.

To reserve a seat on any of the airport shuttles you will need to sign-up in the Transportation Office room 102 of the Physical Plant (B & G building).

Sale of tickets:  Monday – Friday 10:00 am -12:00 pm & 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, or email transportation@bard.edu to make an appointment

Cost to reserve a seat is $30.00, cash only. Please note the last day for shuttle sign-ups is listed below. After deadline date ticket price is $50 per seat, only if seats are still available.

In general one vehicle will service each airport, however if reservations dictate we may combine passengers on a single coach to LaGuardia and JFK airports. If this scenario occurs the Shuttle always stops at Laguardia first then proceeds on to JFK.

Transportation to LaGuardia and JFK takes between 2 1/2–3 hours depending on weather and NYC traffic. Transportation to Albany takes 1 1/2 hours depending on weather and traffic. Plan flight times accordingly.

Return itineraries after breaks vary so widely that we find it impractical to provide a shuttle from the airports, however, we do provide shuttles to return from our local train stations, Rhinecliff (Amtrak) and Poughkeepsie (Metro North and Amtrak). Please find our “Special Schedules” and “Taxi’s, Buses, Trains, Airports” on our website at blogs.bard.edu/transportation.
