    I have an interview coming up in a couple of months and would like to set my travel plans. What would be the best way to Burlington from New York City?? Plane? Amtrak? Bus?
    I doubt I will be driving :oops:

    Call around, the bus might be cheapest but only if the terminal is near where you need to go, otherwise cab fare will kill you. Check out the usual sights <a href="" target="_blank"></a> and Amtrack's website for fares, greayhound prob. has a site too. For flights, the trick to to book 'em early, rates go astronomically high the closer you get to when you need to leave. Good luck and have fun in Vermont.

    check out jetblue.... it's a great airline and you can get some unbelievably low prices.... plus, each seat gets its own directTV screen

    also, you don't get penalized on ticket prices if you wanna fly there and back in the same day

    I just rented a car. It was about $120 and a beautiful drive.

    The train is relaxing, but kind of a long ride (9+ hours). Plus, it lets you off in Essex Junction at something barely recognizable as a train station (just a building by the tracks). Then you'd have to get a ride into town, which wouldn't be that hard, I suppose. I would imagine Greyhound goes up there, but it would also be a long ride.

    Actually, I did exactly this. I flew into NY and hung out with a friend and then went up to VT for an interview. I took the train. It takes a long time (9 or so hours), but it is cheap. My round trip ticket was about 80 bucks. The one problem is that you have to get off at Essex Junction in VT and then take a cab into town. It only costs 10 bucks though. If you've got the time and patience, the train is it.

    another thing, only one train leaves from NY to VT a day. It leaves at 10 am from NY PENN Station.

    Hope this helps

    I hear the Appalachian Trail is nice this time of year. Hey, free lodging!
