Access from Middlebury College to Boston Logan Airport
Our daughter visited Middlebury, Dartmouth, Bowdoin, and several other schools this summer and loved Middlebury--also loved the others. We only learned as she was contemplating applying Early Decision that Middlebury does not have regular bus service to Boston Logan. We live in the western part of the U.S., so flights into Burlington cost 2-4x more one-way, and there are no direct flights; there are daily non stop flights to Boston Logan and easy access via Greyhound and other bus lines to both Dartmouth and Bowdoin. This is a bit of a deal breaker for us and the tour guide says that student government runs buses to/from Logan during final exams. We could not see any listing of schedules and wonder if this could be a budget item for student government that gets cut some years? We don't want her to get more invested in Middlebury and apply early if transportation it too insurmountable - especially when other LACs in the area are far more accessible. Are there any current Middlebury parents or students who can speak to whether this is a problem or whether the student government buses run regularly and are reliable? Are there any other ways (shuttles? rideshares?) of regularly getting to Boston Logan to catch flights?13 replies
