Summer School on Global Sustainability

TRAVEL TO SANTA FE: We expect that you will reserve and purchase your own air and ground travel and pay for them directly. If you have been awarded a travel scholarship, please bring your original receipts with you and you will be reimbursed after your arrival in Santa Fe up to the amount indicated in your award letter. If you have not yet sent your arrival information to Lee Goodwin (, please do so immediately.

NEAREST AIRPORT:The major airport connection to Santa Fe is Albuquerque, New Mexico, which is located approximately 60 miles south of Santa Fe. Most major airlines, including Southwest Airlines, fly into Albuquerque (airport code ABQ). A limited number of flights arrive at the small (and predominantly general aviation) Santa Fe Airport.

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL: Those of you traveling from overseas arriving late on Saturday night can stay in Albuquerque and travel to Santa Fe on Sunday. We will book rooms for you in a hotel by the airport and pay that cost. Please confirm via e-mail as soon as possible to that you request a hotel in Albuquerque for Saturday, July 11. We will NOT cover the cost of a hotel if you make your own arrangements or choose to stay in Santa Fe before the start of the school.

GROUND TRANSPORTATION FROM ALBUQUERQUE INTERNATIONAL SUNPORT: You may reach Bishop's Lodge from the Albuquerque International Sunport (approximately 90 minutes) with Sandia Shuttle (or toll free 888-775-5696). The cost is $45.00 round trip -- we suggest that you make a round-trip reservation, as it is less expensive than two one-way tickets. With the busy summer tourist season in Santa Fe, reservations are mandatory. Be sure to indicate Bishop's Lodge in Santa Fe as your "Drop Off" and "Pick Up" locations when making the reservation. The Sandia Shuttle desk is located across from baggage claim area 3 at the Albuquerque airport. If you have a travel scholarship and your airline ticket costs less than the amount awarded, you may submit your shuttle expense for reimbursement.

GROUND TRANSPORTATION FROM SANTA FE AIRPORT: The Road Runner shuttle will take you from the Santa Fe airport to Bishop's Lodge. For reservations call (505) 424-3367.

CAR RENTAL: Car rental is available at both airports. Note that if you have a travel scholarship, car rental expenses CANNOT be reimbursed by SFI. Refer to information on [1] regarding SFI's corporate arrangement with Enterprise Rent-a-Car.

TRAIN/BUS: You can travel on Amtrak to Lamy, New Mexico (approximately 18 miles from Santa Fe). You will need to make advance reservations for transportation from Lamy to Santa Fe by calling Lamy Shuttles at (505) 982-8829. Greyhound Bus Lines also travels to Santa Fe; you will need to travel by taxi (Capital City Cab 505-438-0000) from the bus station to the hotel.
