For those traveling by plane, please note:
Our conference host site suggests that people try to fly into Bradley Airport if possible. While the cost of flights to Bradley may be higher than Logan, the travel time (about one hour) & overall travel cost may be less when considering options such as renting a vehicle, getting a shuttle or other means of ground transportation from the airport to the campus.
If you choose to fly into Logan Airport please be aware that you should account for extra time (and cost) to get to the UMass Amherst campus. The distance from Logan to the campus is approximately 2 hours and you would also need to consider options such as renting a vehicle, getting a shuttle or other means of ground transportation.
Ground Transportation Options (please also see individual airport website links above for more details/options such as rental cars for smaller groups)
*Valley Transporter (http://www.valleytransporter.com/)
*Seemo Shuttle (http://www.seemoshuttle.com/)
*Both Valley Transporter & Seemo Shuttle offer shared van services with a lot of experience traveling from Bradley to UMass, but they only seat about 11-12 people at one time.
Chartered Bus (if you would like to coordinate arrival/departure times with other groups & share costs)
