Wesleying Unofficial Orientation Series: Getting There from Here

Today’s installment is mostly a repost, detailing ways for you to get around the Connecticut and New England area. Or home, or to get waffle fries at 4 in the morning, or wherever. If you have a car already, you may want to ignore this entirely. If you don’t, then you might want to take our advice and become friends with someone who does.

As any current Wes student will tell you, one area in which Middletown is seriously lacking is its ability to help you get out of Middletown. The closest train station is in Meriden, though your best bet for getting out of town is to go to Union Station in New Haven or Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks (near Hartford). Getting there, though, is quite the challenge, which is why we at Wesleying, with help from our friends at the Peer Advisor Blog, have attempted to compile a list of the car-less ways to get to Connecticut’s two main transportation hubs.

Fall Break Shuttles

It’s that time again: shuttles are now available for Fall Break. To reserve your seat, go to the University Box Office in Usdan by Tuesday, October 18th or buy online. You must purchase all tickets by then, including for rides back to Wesleyan campus, and seats are limited. For more information, call the Box Office at (860)685-3355.

All shuttles leaving Wes depart from the front of Usdan on Wyllys Ave.

Also, don’t forget to check the Rideboard. You can find it under the “Student Life at Wesleyan” section in your ePortfolio. On the Rideboard you can find rides offered by other students, request a ride, or offer rides yourself.
