SYP Transportation Details!
Making your transporation arrangements early helps ensure smooth travels and allows our staff to prepare for your arrival!

So where is Michigan Tech? We are located in Houghton, Michigan, near the shores of Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula. Our Summer Youth Programs offers a chaperoned charter bus service from select locations in the Midwest-including Lansing, Detroit, Bay City, Gaylord, Kalamazoo*, Chicago*, Milwaukee* Green Bay*, and Iron Mountain*. Other travel options include by car, or plane (CMX Houghton County Memorial Airport). *July 10 - 23 only

Here are some tips and information for each travel option:

- Summer Youth Programs Charter Bus
- Personal Vehicle
- Travel by Plane

Summer Youth Programs Charter Bus: Michigan Tech offers a chaperoned charter bus service from select locations. Students are picked up on Saturday evening and travel through the night, arriving on campus on Sunday morning. This is a popular way for students to travel; you have the opportunity to meet staff and fellow students before arriving at Michigan Tech. Only SYP participants will be riding the buses.

Fees are:

- Round-trip fee of $275 - Includes a $25 nonrefundable registration and processing fee. No refunds after June 1. You may choose to be picked up and dropped off at different locations and still qualify for the round-trip rate.
- One-way fee of $175 - Includes a $25 nonrefundable registration and processing fee. No refunds after June 1.

Charter bus payments must be paid in full within 10 days of purchase. Charter transportation requests are not guaranteed until you receive confirmation from SYP. If you request a seat after we have reached full capacity, you will receive a full refund of any transportation fees paid (including the $25 registration and processing fee).

Personal Vehicle: Students often choose to travel to campus with family. The local area offers beautiful scenery, attractions, and lodging options for families if they choose to stay for the duration of the program. CLICK HERE for directions and lodging information.

Students are not permitted to drive during our programs, so those arriving alone by car will need to purchase a $15 parking pass, be assigned a parking area, and their keys will be stored in the SYP safe.

Travel by Plane: Houghton County Memorial Airport (CMX) is only a 15-minute drive from campus and is serviced by United Airlines. Students who fly to Houghton will be met and transported to Michigan Tech by Summer Youth Programs staff members wearing official shirts and name tags.
