Travel information

Travel to Ithaca

If you plan to fly here, there is a small airport in Ithaca, Tompkins County Airport, and the hotel offers a complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle. In some cases it might be substantially cheaper and more convenient to fly to the Syracuse airport. There is a local shuttle service to Ithaca that takes approximately 75 minutes and costs $130 (round-trip). If you fly into Syracuse, and would like a shuttle service to Ithaca, please make reservation at: http://www.ithacaairlinelimousine.com/

There is also bus connection between Manhattan and Ithaca Downtown/Cornell campus, by Cornell bus, Greyhound Lines or Coach USA Shortline. It takes approximately 5 hours to get to Ithaca by bus. The Cornell bus provides a substantially higher standard of service, with comfortable seats and wireless access, and arrives at Sage Hall on the Cornell campus, a few minutes' walk from the Physical Sciences Building. The other buses arrive at the Ithaca bus terminal, from which you could take the free shuttle service of the hotel.

For those who prefer to drive, Ithaca is within driving distance from a number of metropolitan areas: New York City (about 5 hours); Boston (6 hours); Baltimore (6 hours); Montreal (7 hours); Philadelphia (5 hours).

Travel to Forum Site

Buses are scheduled to pick up and drop off attendees every morning and afternoon after meetings ends. Transportation to Forum dinner will also be provided. We discourage taking cars to Cornell campus. If you plan to use a car please go to Cornell's transportation to obtain a parking pass. For other local travel the TCAT bus system is available.
