Ground Transportation

How are you planning to get from the airport to your final destination? You'll want to consider these travel arrangements before you leave. 

Often the International Student Association at your college or university will arrange ground transportation to pick you up. 

Other options include: 

  • Shuttle - A shuttle is a mid-sized bus or van that usually costs around $30-$50 depending on the distance you are traveling from of the airport. If the driver handles your baggage, an appropriate tip is $1-2 per suitcase. If you are staying at a hotel initially, the hotel may offer free shuttle transportation from the airport. 
  • Taxi/Cab - Only use an official taxicab; avoid private drivers who promise a good rate. Most airports have taxis waiting right outside. If you are not going very far (10-20 miles) the cost will be around $30-40, plus tip (about 15 percent of total fare). This is probably the most expensive way to travel, but it's also quite convenient. 
  • Buses/Trains - Buses and trains stop only at designated stops, so you will only want to use these services if a stop is near your final destination. You will have to handle your own luggage. The cost is typically much lower than a taxicab. Most bus and train services in the US run infrequently or not at all after 10pm, so it is not wise to use these systems if you arrive at night.
