  • Tweed-New Haven Regional Airport (HVN): New Haven, CT
    It is only minutes from the Yale campus and served by US Airways with daily non-stop flights to/from Philadelphia International Airport. Car rentals and taxi service are available.
  • Bradley International Airport (BDL): Hartford, CT (52 Miles from New Haven)
    An alternative to the New York City airports, it is served by all major airlines and is reasonably easy to access from/to New Haven.
  • LaGuardia Airport (LGA): Flushing, NY (73 Miles from New Haven)
    It is the smallest of the New York area airports. Travelers find it fairly quiet and easy to pass through compared to JFK and EWR airports.
  • John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK): Jamaica, NY (80 miles from New Haven)
    JFK is the largest, busiest and most heavily used airport in the New York Metro area. Due to the volume of travelers using JFK, immigration controls could delay your travel time.
  • Newark Airport (EWR): Newark, NJ (93 Miles from New Haven)
    It is one of three major airports serving the New York Metropolitan Area. Amtrak provides rail service to/from EWR-New Haven.

From Airports to the Yale Campus:

  • Shuttle Services
  • Bus Service: Greyhound leaves New York City (W41st Street and 8th Avenue) and stops at The New Haven Green on College Street (between Elm and Chapel Street). It is the cheapest way to reach Yale campus from New York City (around $10-$12), but the number of daily rides is limited (5:30 am, 8:30 am, 12:01 pm, and 2:00 pm). To reach the Greyhound Station from either JFK or LaGuardia, riders will have to first take the city bus and/or subway and then walk about 500 feet.
