    I have two questions:
    During the holidays, will USMA provide transportation to and from airports for cadets and for cadets and their relatives on R-Day?
    also, is cadet field training the summer after plebe year?
    Thank you! Go Black Knights!

    Over on the West Point Parents Facebook page, there was information for cadets regarding signups for President's Day weekend and Spring Break - bus transportation between West Point, and the NYC airports, Newark, LGA, and JFK.

    From the info in the parents handbook and the new cadet handbook, it is stated that USMA will make arrangements for the new cadet to travel from their home to West Point. This info is on the candidate portal once an appointment is offered.

    We're assuming that travel for leave is the responsibility of the cadet, and travel for parents to/from West Point is the parents' responsibility. Have not seen anything to indicate otherwise.

    Now would be a good time to make reservations for R-day, march back, and A-day.

    Good questions!

    USMA provides bus transportation to and from airports when there is leave but you have to buy tickets beforehand. The buses go to nearby airports.

    Yes, CFT is for the Summer after Plebe year.

    West Point does not provide transportation for family members on R-Day. Cadets traveling alone to R-Day are provided transportation from the airport, but most families flying in rent a car.
