What is a complimentary airport pick-up?

This is a service we offer new international students arriving from JFK Airport on August 17-21st. 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.
