BY TAXI OR BY CAR SERVICE:
Drop off and pick up for all car service is in the Mitchel Field parking facility, not on the Hofstra campus. Due to security measures and temporary road closures on and around the Hofstra campus, this will be the most reliable method of getting to and from the site, especially on October 15.
BY LONG ISLAND RAIL ROAD:
Hofstra's "Blue Beetle" student shuttle service meets most trains at the Hempstead and Mineola LIRR stations. For an exact schedule of pick-ups visit the shuttle bus schedule.
If the blue beetle is not available for the train you are taking, taxis are available. Ask them to take you to the Mitchel Field parking facility on Charles Lindbergh Boulevard in Uniondale.
BY SHUTTLE BUS:
Shuttle buses will be available from the Long Island Marriott, beginning Sunday, October 12, through Thursday, October 16. The Holiday Inn/Hampton Inn/La Quinta shuttle is availble only on Tuesday (10/14) and Wednesday (10/15) only.
On Wednesday, October 15, all shuttle buses will go to the Mitchel Field parking facility. Passengers will go through a security checkpoint at Mitchel Field and will be brought directly to the site on a shuttle bus. There will be no direct hotel-to-site shuttles.
For complete shuttle schedules, visit the Transportation Schedule page.
