Uber and Lyft now operate in the Fishkill and Newburgh areas and cost much less than a taxi. I find the cars of these drivers are in better condition than the vehicles of local taxi companies as well. Please remember to download and set up the Uber or Lyft app on your smartphone before you arrive in town.

 

Travel from New York City area airports to PTI summer camp.

From JFK, LaGuardia or Newark airports go to Grand Central Station in Manhattan. A taxi will cost around $35 to $45 plus another $10 in tolls to get from one of these airports to GCS. (Uber or Lyft should be much less) There are shuttle buses that cost less than $20 ( see links under airports). If arriving at JFK or LaGuardia the subway is the least expensive, but the most complicated and the most difficult to get through with luggage.

From JFK or LaGuardia:

From Newark, NJ

Go from Grand Central Station to Beacon or New Hamburgh, NY: Beacon is closer to Fishkill, NY which is where your hotel should be. New Hamburgh is the closest station to the seminar if you are arriving on a camp day.

 

From Grand Central Station take Metro North Railroad Hudson Line:
