For domestic flights, allow a minimum of 90 minutes after your flight arrival time.

    Tranportation Guidelines

    Our Promise

    As we all know, there is some built-in uncertainty to travel today. We understand and expect that some flights will be delayed. We will not sell every seat on a run, so that there is some leeway for those with reservations to take a later bus due to a delayed flight.

    Help Us

    Book your transportation as soon as you can. We can increase the size of the bus on a particular run or add more runs before April. The closer it gets to the meeting, the harder it will be to increase our options. We may also need to adjust times and/or cancel runs based on interest. However, we will do this in a way that means you might only need to wait a bit longer for your transportation to the Mohegan Sun.

    Family Members & Guests

    We welcome family members of all ages and guests on our airport and city transportation. However, everyone must purchase a seat. Infants will need to be in a standard car seat provided by the parent. Contact us about special rates for those 6 and under at annualmeeting@culturalheritage.org.
