Getting Here


Public Transportation to New Student Orientation

SUNY Plattsburgh is located only a few miles from both the bus and train station. Students/family members arriving by bus/train will be offered a complimentary shuttle from the station to campus as well as a return on the last day of the program.

For family members without transportation (who are attending the program), we will be running a shuttle from hotels listed on the accommodations page at the beginning and end of each orientation day.

If you will be arriving by bus or train, please contact one of the following to purchase your tickets:

By Bus

By Rail (Train)

By Air

After you have purchased your tickets, you must email  or call (518) 564-3282 to arrange for a shuttle pick-up. You must request a shuttle pick-up 3 business days prior to your session to ensure a complimentary shuttle.

Shuttle services will be provided for arrivals between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on the day of your session’s check-in. We will keep in contact with the bus and train station and will know if there will be a delay. As such, if your bus or train is running late, rest assured that as long as you have pre-arranged a shuttle ride with us, we will be there to pick you up when you arrive.
