Transportation to and from Bard
Transportation from JFK Airport: The new tutors should arrive at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport on the appointed date, which is usually 5 days before the first day of classes. An airport shuttle will be there to meet them and bring them to the Bard campus. If they are unable to arrive on the appointed date, they will have to make their own transportation arrangements and/or use public transportation to travel to the College, which is 2.5 hours from Kennedy Airport.
