Conference 2012: Bloomington Transportation

Shuttles to airport: If you’re flying to Indiana for the conference, you’re probably going to the Indianapolis airport. GO Express Travel provides affordable shuttles back and forth between Indy and Bloomington, which are about an hour’s drive apart.  You can reserve a one-way ticket online for $15 or buy one at the kiosk for $20.

Bus routes around town: While the interface to the Bloomington Transit website is admittedly horrible, don’t let yourself be too alarmed. The website doesn’t do the shuttles justice: these reliable, regularly running buses will get you where you need to go. Fare is $1.

Parking options on campus: Because the conference will take place over a weekend, you’re in luck! IU has free parking in the D and E lots as well as its parking garages on Saturdays and Sundays.  If you’re coming for the SAA workshop on Friday, you’ll have plenty of visitor parking options as well!
