    I was invited to going to the March CVW, and I am trying to make travel plans. I'll be going directly from my school, probably doing Amtrak to BWI. Does anyone know of a more cost effective mode of transportation from New York-Baltimore, than Baltimore to the Academy?

    If anyone else from the Northeast is planning on going, maybe we can split the cost of a cab if we arrive at the same time?

    Thanks for your help!

    This is going to help you, but just out of curiosity, when is the March CVW?

    Once at BWI AMTRAK station, you can take the free shuttle over to BWI airport, where there is a Super Shuttle shared van service desk on the baggage level. You can also find Super Shuttle online. Alternately, you can use The Airport Shuttle (find them by googling The Airport Shuttle), which is another BWI shared van service, and pay by cc online. Pick-up is at the airport, and you would put in destination as King George St., Gate 1, Naval Academy, Annapolis. Less than a cab ride from the BWI AMTRAK station. Not sure if Super Shuttle and The Airport Shuttle service the AMTRAK station directly, might be worth a call.

    I wanted to but unfortunately I can't. I am currently in college and don't have the ability to really miss any classes this semester.

    I see, I'm in college too, but I don't have any Friday classes this semester so I can make it out.

    Capt MJ, thank you for that information. I looked up Super Shuttle, and they do seem to have a discount for people that travel in groups. Is there anyone else planning to take a Super Shuttle to the March CVW? Perhaps we can use the same reservation and save some cash.

    I did call and Super Shuttle services Amtrak BWI directly, but I'm not sure about the airport shuttle.

    EDIT: Just checked, and The Airport Shuttle is cheaper and does service Amtrak BWI.
