Travel Arrangements


Syracuse is accessible by air, rail, bus, and car. Hancock International Airport serves many major destinations. Our airport code is SYR.

SU is approximately a 10-15 minute cab ride from either the airport or RTC. Uber and Lyft are also available in Syracuse.

Planning for the Weather
March is technically spring, but Syracuse can be subjected to unseasonable weather this time of year. We may experience an late winter snowfall or colder temperatures than usual. Our best advice is to prepare for anything. Check the forecast ahead of time (weather.com or local TV stations, localsyr.com or CNY Central) and dress in layers.
