Transportation

Bus

For those coming from the Midwest, one can catch a non-stop Megabus from Chicago, Milwaukee and other regional cities.  Tickets cost as low as $1 (but averaging between $20 and $40) and the bus drops you off either on the UofM campus or downtown (with a short bus ride or taxi to campus).

Flying

Attendees can fly into the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport (MSP). Sun Country is the local budget airline.

Transportation from the airport:

Taxi: Appoximately $25 -- Shuttle: Approx. $16 (Super Shuttle)
Light Rail / Bus: $1.50 ($2 in rush hour) - Take the light rail from the airport toward downtown. Exit at the Metrodome stop. Take the #3, 16, or 50 buses on 4th street (same side of 4th as the lightrail station) heading toward St. Paul/University. This will take you within two blocks of the three hotels near campus.  (For more info, see the Twin Cities Metro Transit Quick Trip Planner.)  Hotels most likely offer a shuttle service that will bring you to the conference location.

Lodging

Lodging

There are three hotels close to the conference location:
Holiday Inn Metrodome
Radisson
Day’s Inn (University)

There was a block of room reserved at the Day’s Inn but this offer has expired.  However, we have heard that people are finding cheap rooms via online searches.

Room sharing: If you would like us to put you in contact with other conference attendees for the purpose of sharing a hotel room, please contact us (comradmn@gmail.com) and we can help arange this.

Crash with a graduate student: If you would like to stay with a graduate student while in town that is also an option. Please let us know, and we can make arrangements for you.
