Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Blackbird by Air
Visiting from far away? No worries, there are several airports in the central New York area that will get you close to Cortland. However, visitors will likely need to rent a car as the Syracuse and Ithaca airports are still a bit of a distance away from the main festival venue.
We suggest flying into Syracuse (SYR) and renting a car for the weekend. Central New York is somewhat rural and visitors may appreciate having access to a car during their stay. While the Ithaca (ITH) airport is closer, it is much smaller with fewer travel options available. Blackbird will be arranging group airport pick-ups from the Syracuse airport for visiting filmmakers and VIP guests.
Blackbird by Bus / Train
Traveling directly to Cortland by bus or train is an easy and affordable option for filmmakers visiting from New York City! Greyhound and New York Trailways offer bus and motor coach service with drop off in Cortland. Or the Amtrak train can get you to Syracuse where you can catch a bus or rent a car for the final leg of your journey. Once within the city of Cortland, taxi and limousine services, as well as Cortland Transit, make traveling easy.
GROUND TRAVEL OPTIONS:
If you are traveling from the NYC area, we suggest taking the Greyhound or Trailways bus to Cortland as both coaches stop at the Cortland County Office Building (60 Central Avenue, Cortland, NY 13045) which is walking distance from Main Street and a very short Uber / Lyft ride to many of the local hotels.
Blackbird by Car
Whether you are planning on renting a car or looking to bounce around once you arrive, the following transportation information may be helpful. However, please know that ALL festival activities will be within walking distance of Greek Peak and so a car will not likely be needed once you arrive
