Getting to and around Ithaca


Transportation from Airports

Tompkins Regional Airport at Ithaca

Both the Statler Hotel and the Hilton Garden Inn have courtesy phones in the airport terminal, as do several of the other major hotels. You can pick up the phone, be connected to the hotel and request a van pick up. Your wait will be approximately 10-15 mins. Or phone the hotel ahead of time with your flight information and they will meet you when you arrive. Taxi cabs are often available at the airport, or you can phone for one.

Parking on Campus

Parking on Cornell Campus is extremely limited. We strongly suggest you use an alternate method of transportation as further suggested below. Car pooling with others attending the conference is also suggested. If you are staying at the Statler Hotel, they provide parking for their guests for a fee.

Parking on campus requires a permit during the weekdays. If you require parking on Friday, please stop at the Information and Parking Booth as you enter campus where you can purchase a one-day visitors parking permit at the rate of $10/day or $6/4 hrs.  Please let the attendant know that you are attending a conference being held at the Statler Hotel and would like to purchase a visitors permit for the parking garage. The garage is within easy walking distance of the Statler Hotel. The Information and Parking Booth are located at all main entrances to campus and are opened Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM.

On Saturday, you may park permit-free in the “HH” or SA” lots behind Myron Taylor Hall.  See Parking Map

Chartered Shuttle Service

If you are staying at the Hilton Garden Inn, we have scheduled a shuttle to run between campus & and Hilton to coincide with the conference schedule. Please plan to board the shuttle at the front entrance of the hotels at least 5 minutes before scheduled departure times. Please meet shuttles departing from the Law School for Saturday afternoon activities and transportation to the Hilton at the Anabel Taylor Hall bus stop. Please make arrangements with the hotel’s front desk for a hotel courtesy van if you have missed the scheduled bus or if you are located at a hotel other than the Hilton Garden Inn.
