Rental Car

A 1-way rental car that you pick up at the airport and return in Plattsburgh is one of the fastest and most convenient options to get to FRC from major airports in the region. If you can coordinate with even 1 other guest to split the cost of a rental car and gas this can be the most affordable option. With a groups of 3 or 4 people the per-person cost gets even lower. FRC can shuttle groups from the rental car return at Plattsburgh airport to FRC.
