LCAT also provides transportation to the Lehigh Valley Airport on designated days at the beginning and end of each semester break and major holidays. Students should check the LCAT Special shuttle schedule prior to booking a flight and reserve a shuttle seat at least 4 business days in advance. The schedule is online at and can be found via the Families website.
