Travel Information

Travel to Utica
The closest commercial airports to Utica are Syracuse (88 km west of Utica) and Albany (148 km east of Utica).  From either city, you can travel by train or bus, or book a taxi or limousine service to Utica. Train and bus services are also available from New York, Boston, and other major cities. We strongly recommend booking airport transportation well in advance of your arrival or departure.

We encourage new international and incoming exchange students to arrive on the international arrival date, usually the Monday or Tuesday before classes start, and returning students to arrive three days before the start of the semester. Please notify International Education of your travel plans. OIE provides a courtesy pick-up for all new international and exchange students on international arrival day. Please note that outbound exchange students and returning international students are responsible for arranging their own airport transfers. 

Airport Transportation Service
The Utica University Office of International Education (OIE) has partnered with Adonis-Avanti Transportation to offer transportation between Syracuse or Albany Airport and Utica University. Reservations must be made through OIE at least one week in advance, but for busy travel periods, students are advised to make reservations as soon as they know their travel plans. Students will be billed by Utica University according to the current rate schedule published in the request form, determined by the number of people sharing the ride. Adjustments can be made in the event of flight delays as long as Adonis-Avanti is notified promptly. Cancellations within 24 hours of the scheduled transport cannot be refunded. Payment is due at the time of reservation. Use this form to request transportation to Syracuse or Albany Airports.
