A deluxe express Concord Trailways bus (207-945-4000, 800-639-3317) travels from Boston to Portland and Bangor (movies are shown on board and snacks are provided). Concord Trailways also offers local bus service from Portland to Bangor via Coastal Route 1. Bus service from Bangor to Mathew’s Country Store in Steuben's (1.5 hour trip) is provided by West's Coastal Connections (207-546-2823; in Maine, 800-596-2823; or simply call Concord Trailways at 207-945-4000). There is one daily departure from Bangor at about 3:00 PM and one daily departure from Steuben at about 11:00 AM (times may be variable, i.e., inquiries are absolutely essential). Participants can call the Institute upon arrival at the Country Store to arrange for a ride (546-2821).


Amtrak (800-872-7245) provides train service to Portland, where the terminal is shared with Concord Trailways, which provides bus service on to Bangor (see above).


Option 1: Brad’s Cab charges a flat rate of $100 to go from the Bangor Airport to the Institute, BUT you must call them as far as possible ahead of time at 207-941-9695 to arrange for a pickup. It is against taxi regulations to make a flat rate arrangement without a phone call (if you walk up to a cab without a prior phone call, you will be charged full metered price). Brad’s Cab has a phone in the terminal baggage area once you arrive. Make sure to mention that we talked with Brad and Margo, the owners/drivers.

Option 2: Penobscot Taxi also charges a flat rate of $100 if you call them ahead of time at 207-947-4894. Make sure to mention that we talked with Vicki, who is Ryan’s mother, who together with his wife April are the primary drivers. These are the two best companies. Note: carpooling back to Bangor is almost always possible on Saturday morning at the conclusion of a seminar.


If you have not done so already in your application form, please let us know if you are interested in carpooling with someone from the Bangor Airport or some other vicinity.
