Airport-to-iWPS-hotel...
« on: December 07, 2008, 10:18:55 PM »
Hi--is there any sort of public transit or shuttle I can use to get from the airport to the hotel? I Mapquested it, and it looks like a 6 mi taxi ride, but wanted to know if there were going to be other options. I'm scheduled to arrive at 10:50 Thursday morning.

Thanks,
Eric

The host city didn't arrange any shuttle service and the hotel doesn't offer complimentary service.

The city bus (CATS) has a stop directly in front of the airport. It cost $1.50. You would need to take the bus to the main bus terminal and the hotel is a 3 block walk.

A taxi ride will cost roughly $15.
I love me MORE.......the campaign

As always, Inkera rocks. I'm all about the bus.

For anybody else: I just checked around on the CATS site, and it looks like this is the route:

Inkera,

Does the bus run in the evening.  I get in around 6pm on Thursday.
