There are several domestic carriers for Bangor International Airport and I recommend you contact your local travel agent. You can also check their website: www.flybangor.com. The Bar Harbor Airport is served by Colgan Airlines which is a branch of US Airways - phone number 800-428-4322. Taxi service from Bangor International Airport is approximately $60 and from Trenton $20. During the conference there is a free bus available from Bar Harbor Airport which will leave you off right on campus, if you let the driver know. This runs on a regular schedule during the day, and as we get closer to the date I will let you know when they run, but it is about once an hour. Rental cars are available at both airports. There is no bus service between Bangor Airport and Bar Harbor. Following are names and phone numbers of local taxis that provide airport service:
