There are four airports in the New York Metropolitan Area – LaGuardia (LGA), Kennedy(JFK), Newark(EWR) and Westchester County(HPN). Westchester is only about 15 minutes from the campus, however it is relatively small and flights are relatively expensive. Cab fare from Westchester Airport to NYMC can cost between $30 and $40. LaGuardia airport is about 45 minutes from campus. Kennedy and Newark are both approximately one(+)hours from campus. Car/limousine service is available from these airports. Students are encouraged to research in advance the car/limousine fares from LGA, JFK, and EWR. Also, keep in mind travel time varies greatly with traffic. More information is available on the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey website. .

To travel as inexpensively as possible, we recommend travel by train to Westchester from Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. Metro-North Railroad runs trains from Grand Central Station to White Plains or North White Plains stations on the Harlem Line. Train schedules are available on the Metro-North website. Train fare (one-way) is approximately $9 off-peak, and $12 peak one-way to White Plains if you buy your ticket at the train station. However, if you purchase your ticket on the train, you will be charged a $6 surcharge on the off-peak or peak fare. The train ride is one hour and the taxi ride to campus is about 10 minutes. 


Taxis are usually readily at the White Plains Train station. However if you are arriving at the Valhalla or North White Plains train stations, it will probably be necessary to call a cab. The College has arranged for special taxi pricing with All County Transportation Company for visitors. These reduced rates also apply to transportation to and from all four area airports including Westchester, LaGuardia, JFK, and Newark. Just be sure to mention you are visiting NYMC when making the pick-up reservation. Click All County Transportation Company‌ for contact and special fare information.)


The Bee-Line System runs local buses from Metro-North train stations and other locations around Westchester County. For schedule or fare information call (914) 682-2020. More information is available on the Bee-Line System website.


In the fall or spring (September-November; April-June), it might be wise to bring a light jacket and umbrella. In the winter(December-March), it can be cold, snowy, or icy; therefore, a heavier coat and boots are advisable. A portion of our interview day includes a tour outdoors.
