Recommended Alternative Transportation Option

If you are not taking one of the free LAK15 Airport Shuttles then we are recommending that attendees take a shuttle (see below) from area airports to one of the two main New York City train stations (Grand Central Terminal or Penn Station) and then take either a Metro North or AMTRAK train to Poughkeepsie, New York.  From the Poughkeepsie train station it is a short (5 minute) cab/taxi ride to the conference hotels and the Marist College campus.  Below are detailed travel information for these options.

STEP ONE: Transit from airport to New York City train station(s)

John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and LaGuardia Airport (LGA)

If you are arriving at JFK or LGA we highly recommend that you use the NYC Airporter Shuttle which will provide transportation to either Grand Central Terminal OR Penn Station (see below for train station information).

  • Tickets cost $14-$16 (US) one-way or round-trip for $26-$30 (US).
