2019 Conference Transportation
Share |


Marist College is located in the middle of the beautiful and historic Hudson River Valley, just 75 miles from metropolitan New York City. More than three hundred years of New York history can be found in Dutchess and the surrounding counties, and it is all offered to area visitors, accompanied by breathtaking views.

Ride Share - Group Carpool

Group Carpool is a ride share app that we hope will streamline group transportation for our attendees. It allows our attendees to setup carpools from and to the various airports in the region. Drivers will establish their arrival/departure days and how many riders their vehicle can accommodate. Riders will then be able to join any driver that's currently available in the 2019 CCUMC - Marist College group carpool.
