For those of you needing transportation TO and FROM the Buffalo Airport, we will be using the same service as we do every year. The system and times will work in exactly the same way.
In making your ARRIVAL arrangements, please note that transportation will be provided from the airport directly to the Niagara Falls Country Club.
As you exit the Baggage Claim Area, go out the doors and to the left. Follow the signs that say to “All Buses.” The Bus parking lot is outside to the left at the end of the building.
Once outside, look for either a yellow school bus or van marked “Niagara Falls Coach Lines.” A Porter Cup sign will be displayed on the vehicle.
Buses will leave from the Buffalo Airport at APPROXIMATELY these times:
Sunday, July 16th at Noon, 2PM, 4PM, 6PM, and 8PM.
Monday, July 17th at 10AM, Noon, 2PM, 4PM, 6PM, and 8PM.
It is EXTREMELY important that you either email me your travel itinerary at: [email protected] or call me with the information at: 716-308-7614. For those ARRIVING BY AIR, I will need the date and time of your arrival, airline and flight number in order to notify the Bus Drivers so that they will be expecting you. If you are DRIVING to the tournament, I would also appreciate knowing the date and approximate time of your arrival.
If your flight is delayed or changed, please call me at any of the telephone numbers listed below. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT particularly if you are arriving on a date or time other than those serviced by the bus. In this situation, you will be met by a member of the Transportation Committee. That person will meet you at the airport – just beyond the security area, and will hold up a Porter Cup sign for identification purposes – and will drive you directly to the Club or your host family.
Please plan your flight DEPARTURE according to the following information.
A bus will leave from the Club and take you directly to the Buffalo airport on Sunday, July 23rd, at 5AM, 7AM, 9AM, and 11AM. (These times are estimates – they may change to accommodate specific players’ flight times.)
If you need to leave on Saturday evening after the tournament, please note that it does not usually end before 5:30PM. We normally have one bus departure scheduled for 6PM. As it takes approximately one hour for the bus to travel to the airport, please do not schedule your outgoing flight until after 8PM on Saturday.
