Finals Push and Travel Plans
There is no way around it Connecticut is an internationally recognized hotbed for higher education. Whether studying in the hallowed halls of Yale University, at smaller liberal arts schools including Connecticut College or Wesleyan University, at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy or larger state schools including UConn, 1998 saw 154,229 students call Connecticut home.* Enrollment figures were projected to continue through the decade and well into next, likely finding our resident collegiate population even higher.
December typically marks the end of the fall semester and finds college students studying furiously to pass exams and hand in research papers. For some, the time will come to pack up and move home. Others will need to pack their bags and head home for the holidays. While most of the area schools offer some form of transportation to area transportation hubs, the scheduled times can often be unaccommodating to a student who has been up for nights on end, studying to pass exams. College students on limited budgets often overlook the benefit a car service company can offer. Whether needing transportation to an area airport (LaGuardia, JFK, Newark, Bradley, White Plains or New Haven), regional transit center (Stamford, Grand Central Terminal or Penn Station) or bus depot (New Haven, Bridgeport and Stamford) we are able to accommodate individual travel schedules on a flexible schedule. For the budget minded traveler, consider discount offerings or sharing a ride with fellow students. If January or February will see your return to Connecticut, consider making a round trip airport transfer reservation to ensure you are set upon return instead of waiting out in the cold. A scheduled car offers peace of mind over grabbing a seat on an airport shuttle service or college shuttle.
For the university set home on vacation, gathering a group of your friends and touring the town in a limousine can be a great way to safely take in New Year’s festivities. Packages can be customized based on group size and desired agenda.
As members of our staff have attended and graduated from area universities including the University of New Haven, Sacred Heart University, Fairfield University, UConn Storrs and Quinnipiac University, we are proud to extend a 10% discount to current students and fellow alumni. If the holidays find you traveling far from home or back to Connecticut, please give us a call for all your chauffeured ground transportation needs. We are proud to be locally owned and operated while offering our customers access to a nationwide network of service providers. Happy Holidays!
