Traveling to Bucknell

People in the Lewisburg area like to say that Bucknell is either centrally-located (within a few hours of Philly, NYC and DC) or centrally-isolated (no way to get here that doesn’t involve at least a little bit of driving!) depending on your perspective…. With that in mind, here is some info to help you plot your route to and from Bucknell.

1. For driving directions and information on nearby bus and train stations, airport shuttles and rental cars, please refer to Bucknell University’s directions to Bucknell webpage.

2. If you are flying in for the conference, there are four airports in the area. Williamsport is about 30 minutes from Lewisburg but has fewer flights. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Harrisburg and State College airports are one hour away from Lewisburg but have a larger selection of flights. It’s worth comparing prices at the different airports as you can often find very good deals by flying in to one airport and out of another one.

3. We have created a rideshare spreadsheet (a public Google spreadsheet) that you can use if you want to coordinate with other conference attendees on sharing rides to/from the airports to Bucknell. Or, if you prefer, here are two companies that provide shuttle service between Bucknell and local airports:
