RECESS SHUTTLE SCHEDULE 2021-2022 Academic Year


The shuttle service to return to campus from summer break will be provided from the Albany and Syracuse airports as well as the Utica bus/ train station. The shuttle will transport you from any of these locations directly to your dorm or hotel, if you are required to quarantine upon arrival. A Google form will be emailed no less then 30 days prior to the beginning of the semester to signup for a seat on the shuttle.  Seats are limited, so please signup as soon as the form is made available.  Reservations are not accepted within 2 weeks of the break's departure or return date. This allows us time to coordinate vehicles and drivers.  Please contact the Transportation Office if you have any questions.

For school breaks, Hamilton offers shuttle services to and from the Syracuse and Albany airports as well as the Utica train/bus station. Reservations must be made in advance.  The cost for the shuttle services will be billed directly to the student’s tuition bill.  Please contact the Transportation Office with any questions. 
Bus services, provided by Hale Transportation, will also be offered to and from New York City and Boston.  Buses are not provided at the beginning or end of the academic year, only for breaks. 

Reservation sign-ups will be made available one month prior to break.  A Google form will be emailed to the entire student body with a link to register for a seat.  Reservations are not accepted within 2 week of the break's departure or return dates.
The NYC bus will make a stop at the Vince Lombardi Rest Area located between exits 18E and 18W off of the New Jersey Turnpike.  Students can choose to disembark at that time. The final stop will be at Bryant Park, 42nd Street between 5th and 6th Avenue.
 
The Boston Bus will make a stop at the McDonald’s in Springfield, MA, located at 660 Liberty Street, where students can choose to disembark. The final stop will be at the New England Aquarium located at 1 Central Wharf, Boston, MA.
