Transportation

Getting to Glimmerglass

The Glimmerglass Festival's Alice Busch Opera Theater is located at 7300 State Highway 80, Cooperstown, NY 13326, eight miles north of the historic village of Cooperstown. A listing of transportation options appears below.

We highly recommend traveling by car. Due to our rural setting, public transportation is hard to find. A car will most likely be needed even if you travel through Albany, Binghamton, Syracuse or Utica.

Or, consider joining one of these groups for a bus trip to Glimmerglass. Groups are traveling to Glimmerglass from Syracuse, Rochester and Old Forge, New York, as well as Hartford, Connecticut and more.
