I'll probably take the short line bus thurs night too. Do you have to buy the tickets at port authority in advance, it doesnt have an online option.
Yeah it looks like you have to get them in person.
I just went to visit Cornell this week (I can't make it next weekend), and this is indeed the case. The ticket booth is on the 2nd floor of Port Authority, and the bus will probably leave from one of the gates 314-316.
The price quote on the website also seems to be wrong. It cost me $60 each way. I heard that you can buy a ticket on the bus itself if you don't have time to visit the booth, but I don't know if this is correct.
I got a round trip ticket for $107...did you buy the tickets individually for $60?
Really? They said I had to pay $60 each way since I wasn't a student. And yes, they gave me two one-ways instead of a roundtrip. Hmm. Well, that's annoying.
Where are people staying? I was only admitted last week, so I only had a little time to plan the trip. All of the hotels linked on the Cornell Law School website are completely booked that weekend. I'm looking at the B&Bs and I won't have a car, so that rules out a large portion of the B&Bs.
I'm at the Super 8 motel, which is like 2 miles from the law school. Bus line runs nearby to the school, but I'll have a car as well. If you're nearby I'm sure I could drive you.
I never once actually saw a bus on that line while I was in Ithaca. I stayed at the Comfort Inn, and the person working the front desk said that bus almost never actually comes by. I would recommend a cab (call 607-277-7777 since it's tough to hail one), though the Super 8 isn't too bad of a walk as long as you know where you're going (and of course the weather is decent).
