Travel & Hotel:
How to Get to the Conference

to top Airports

Bradley International Airport

[] (BDL, also known as Hartford-Springfield Airport), located in the northern part of Connecticut. BDL is the closest major airport to New Haven and is convenient for most domestic destinations and some international flights via connections (i.e., United Airlines, NW Airlines, Delta Airlines).

John F. Kennedy International Airport

[ ] (JFK) is frequently used for direct international flights to and from Europe and Asia. It is about two hours from New Haven.

LaGuardia Airport

[ ](LGA) is about the same distance from New Haven as JFK and is convenient for domestic flights.

Newark International Airport

[] (EWR) in northern New Jersey, to the south of New York City, offers many international and domestic flights, but it is the furthest from New Haven and the least convenient. Please note that if you fly into Newark and take the train from the airport into New York City, you will arrive at Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan and must travel uptown via subway or cab to the other train station, Grand Central Station, to take the MetroNorth commuter train to New Haven (see below)

to top Airport transfers

There are several ways of transferring from the above airports to New Haven. Below is some general information.

Connecticut Limousine

[] offers frequent van and bus service from all four airports to New Haven. Please see its web page for specific information about fares, schedules, and bookings. CT Limo has a terminal in downtown New Haven. On arrival in New Haven, it is necessary to take a short cab ride (about $5-$7) to the conference hotels.

Prime Time Shuttle

[] is a smaller company that offers van service to and from JFK and LGA. It is a few dollars more expensive than CT Limo but it will take you directly to the hotel. Please see the Prime Time web site (Connecticut page) for details about booking a van ride.

to top Train service to New Haven

New Haven is served both by the national Amtrak [] railroad and by the New York City metropolitan commuter service, MetroNorth. [] Both train lines stop at New Haven Station, which is a short cab ride to both conference site and hotel (about $5-$7).

Please note, however, that Amtrak and MetroNorth operate from different stations in New York City. The Amtrak station is Pennsylvania Station (31st-33rd Streets at Seventh Avenue) and the MetroNorth station is Grand Central Station (42nd-44th Streets between Vanderbuilt and Park Avenues). Anyone coming from Manhattan is strongly advised to use the MetroNorth New Haven line. Service is much more frequent and much less expensive than Amtrak trains. See the MetroNorth web site for schedule and fare details.
