TO AND FROM THE HOUSTON AIRPORTS
AIRPORT SHUTTLE SERVICE
Express shuttle service offers the most affordable shuttle service
to the official conference hotels. The rate from Houston Intercontinental
Airport to the Medical Center area, where the hotels are located,
is $20 per person. The rate from Hobby Airport to the Medical
Center is $15 per person. The shuttles run approximately hourly
from both airports and deposit passengers directly in front of
the Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Suites, and Best Western hotels
on Main St. (Note that if you are staying at the Rodeway, the
nearest stop is in front of the Hilton Hotel on Travis St., about
6 blocks away.) The trip takes about an hour, depending on traffic,
from Houston Intercontinental, and about 20 minutes from Hobby.
Intercontinental Airport, the Airport Express desk is located
across from the baggage claim area in Terminal C, by a sign that
reads "Express Shuttle." You must purchase your shuttle
ticket at this desk. (To get to Terminal C if your flight does
not arrive there, follow the signs to the inter-terminal train.)
At Hobby Airport, the Express Shuttle desk is also located across
from the baggage claim area, in Hobby's only terminal.
Airport Express, call (713) 523-8888.
taxi services operate out of both the Intercontinental and Hobby
Taxi Service: (281) 444-TAXI
Liberty Cab: (713) 695-6700

Hobby Airport to the Medical Center vary from $24-$28 (plus tip).
From Houston Intercontinental, the fares typically range from
$42-46 (plus tip). Please note that if you are arriving with a
group of conference participants, it may be more cost-effective
to split the taxi fare rather than utilize the shuttle service.
RETURNING TO THE AIRPORT
If you choose to return to the airport via the Airport Express
shuttle service, you can arrange a pickup by calling them directly
at the above number. Please make your reservation with Airport
Express at least 3 hours prior to the time of your departure from
the hotel; the night before if you are leaving in the morning.
If you choose to return via taxi, call any of the above services
at least forty-five minutes prior to your departure.
