Hamilton College is offering transportation to all students who are arriving from a state that is required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in New York. The shuttle service will provide transportation 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 the hotel you have a reservation at.

For school breaks, Hamilton offers shuttle services to 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 questions. Bus services, provided by Hale Transportation, will also be offered to New York City and Boston. 

Reservation sign-ups will be made available one month prior to break.  An email will be sent to the entire student body with links to register.
We also offer two buses to NYC and one bus to Boston. 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.
