Logan International Airport: We recommend flying into Logan Airport in Boston, MA, which is a little more than a 2-hour drive/3-hour bus ride away from Hanover. The Dartmouth Coach (http://www.dartmouthcoach.com/ or 1‐800‐637‐0123) operates convenient shuttle buses from Logan Airport to Hanover eight times a day, and they drop off and pick up in front of the Dartmouth College green in Hanover, NH, where we will greet you.
Manchester, NH and Burlington, VT Airports: The Manchester, NH airport and the Burlington, VT airport are served by several major airlines. Both are about 1.5 hour drive/2.5 hour bus ride away from Hanover, NH. 2-3 Greyhound buses per day run from these airports to Hanover, NH or to White River Junction, VT (which is a 10 minute taxi ride from campus). A good place to look at the schedule for this particular service is: http://www.flymanchester.com/bus-schedules. Another option traveling from Manchester is the UV RIDE, which is a shared taxi operating to and from the Manchester Airport. More info can be found at http://www.uvride.com/ or call at 802-448-4004. Reservations 48 hours in advance are required.
Lebanon, NH Regional Airport: Lebanon Regional, a 15-20 minute taxi ride from campus, is served by Cape Air (http://www.flycapeair.com/ ) with flights from Logan Airport in Boston and from White Plains, NY. Only fly into Lebanon, NH if you are brave and like small aircraft!
