2015 Symposium: Directions & Parking

August 13th & 14th, 2015 - Davis Hall @ University at Buffalo - Buffalo, New York

Traveling to Buffalo

By Air

It's easy and cheap to fly to Buffalo. The Buffalo Niagara International Airport boasts some of the most affordable airfares in the United States, as ranked by The Wall Street Journal. There are more than 100 nonstop daily flights, and Buffalo is only an hour’s flight from New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago and Washington, D.C.

By Train

Amtrak services the Buffalo Niagara region with two train stations: Exchange Street, located in downtown Buffalo, and in the Buffalo suburb of Depew, an approximately 20-minute drive from UB’s North Campus.

By Bus

Bus service to Buffalo is offered through three large carriers, Greyhound, Megabus and Trailways, with stops in downtown Buffalo and at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. And when you reach Buffalo, consider the extensive public bus and rail system. NFTA-Metro provides inexpensive routes to the airport, bus, and train terminals.
