Travel to the conference

Burlington is easily accessible. By car it is 90 minutes from Montreal, 3½ hours from Boston and approximately five hours from New York. In addition to its airport Burlington is served by AMTRAK (train) and several bus lines.

If you are flying to the conference

Make sure to book your flight to Burlington, Vermont. (One of the past conference organizers, who shall remain nameless, accidentally sent herself to Burlington, Iowa, once. Very embarrassing.)

If you are arriving at Burlington Airport and not renting a car, the easiest way to the conference facility is by taxi. This should cost about $15-$20. Tell the driver that you are heading to the Bishop Booth Conference facility behind Burlington High School.
