What is a complimentary airport pick-up?

This is a service we offer new international students arriving at JFK Airport on designated days leading up to Orientation. If you plan your travel to arrive between those dates, you may use our Airport Pick-Up form to request a space on a shuttle that will bring you to campus. If you reserve through us, it’s free!

How do I reserve an airport pick-up?

Reservations will be announced closer to the event date.

What if I am arriving to a different airport?

Our service is specific to JFK Airport only. If you arrive before these dates, at a different airport, or are NOT a new student, you should make your own transportation arrangements. We highly recommend Go Shuttle. They are safe, easy to use, and reservations can be made in advance. They offer a special discount for UB students. For reservations, click HERE. The cost is $59.00, and you may pay online.

If you arrive at Newark airport (EWR), you can make Amtrak reservations to Bridgeport for approximately $30.  For more information, please go to

Can I just use a taxi?

We recommend that you do not use an airport taxi if you are traveling from a NYC airport to Bridgeport. This would be extremely expensive. Uber is sometimes less expensive, but costs may vary. For a set price and peace of mind, use Go Shuttle.
