TRAVEL
 

GETTING TO AND FROM BURLINGTON, VERMONT

by air:

BTV IS THE AIRPORT.

BTV IS WELL SERVED BY FLIGHTS FROM CHICAGO O’HARE, NYC (BOTH JFK AND LGA AS WELL AS EWR). WE SUGGEST JETBLUE THROUGH JFK. LOTS OF GOOD CONNECTING FLIGHTS THROUGH DETROIT AS WELL.

OR TRY GETTING A CHEAPER FLIGHT TO BOSTON AND TAKE THE MEGABUS, SEE BELOW.

BTV IS VERY CLOSE TO CAMPUS. A TAXI IS FAIRLY CHEAP TO UVM OR TO ANY HOTELS WE ARE USING. THE HOTEL OFTEN HAS A SHUTTLE THAT CAN TAKE YOU TO THE AIRPORT WHEN YOU LEAVE.

BY TRAIN:

AMERICA IS NOT REALLY A PASSENGER TRAIN COUNTRY, BUT IT IS GETTING BETTER. THE PROBLEM WITH TRAINS TO BURLINGTON IS THAT THEY ARE NOT THAT DIRECT, BUT TAKE YOU TO ESSEX JUNCTION, VERMONT.

THE VERMONTER RUNS DAILY FROM WASHINGTON, DC TO ST. ALBANS, VERMONT, BUT YOU WOULD GET OFF THE TRAIN AT ESSEX JUNCTION.

BY BUS:

GREYHOUND AND VERMONT TRANSIT BUSES NO LONGER SERVE THE OLD BUS STATION, BUT NOW USE THE AIRPORT AS A STATION, WHICH IS A GOOD MOVE. HOWEVER, GREYHOUND IS ONLY ADVERTISING BUSES FROM BOSTON AND MONTREAL TO BURLINGTON. NYC-BURLINGTON LOOKS LIKE A DIFFICULT BUS TRIP.

MEGABUS HAS STARTED A CHEAP ROUTE FROM BOSTON & NYC WITH DIRECT BUSES MAKING THE ROUTE IN ABOUT 4 HOURS, ARRIVING AT UVM CAMPUS. THE PRICES ARE CHEAP AND THE BUSES ARE NICE.
