Air travel

Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) is the most convenient airport for the conference venue and hotel.

Travelers may also consider LaGuardia Airport (LGA) and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), but note that these require ground transportation across New York City. Please be aware that St. Patrick’s Day celebrations will be taking place the weekend of the conference in both New Jersey and New York, so plan ahead for traffic!

Ground transportation

To get from the airport to the hotel or conference venue, travelers may consider taxis, Uber, or Lyft car services. There are also public transportation options, which will require transfers.

Local commuting

Stevens campus is within walking distance from the Hoboken terminal, a multi-modal transit hub that connects people via New Jersey Transit trains and buses, Metro-North commuter trains, Hudson-Bergen Light Rail trains, PATH trains, and NY Waterway ferries.
