Arriving in Rochester
The University of Rochester is located just minutes from the Rochester International Airport and other transportation hubs in the city. If you are unable to arrange for someone to meet you at the airport, taxi services are available at all times. A typical fare is approximately $10 to $20, depending on the number of passengers and baggage. It is customary to give the driver a small tip (approximately 10% to 15%, or $2 to $3). Alternatively, many area hotels offer free shuttle service to their guests, either pick-up from the airport or transportation to University campuses.
