Airport Shuttles

2020-2021

Reservations Required

Airport shuttles are scheduled four times during the year, Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, Spring Recess, and End of School Year. 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

Cost to reserve a seat is $30.00, cash only for Early Birds. The last days for Early Bird sign-ups are listed below.

After deadline date ticket price is Standard $50 per seat, only if 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.

*Cargo space is extremely limited.  Each passenger is allowed a maximum of 2 standard-sized suitcases and one small carry-on.  Passengers with excess or oversized baggage will be charged a minimum price of one standard ticket ($50.00), in cash, to transport additional luggage.  All musical instruments must be packed in hard travel cases, and will be subject to the same restrictions as all other baggage.

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).
