All speakers will be lodging at the
Holiday Inn Hotel, located 1/2 mile from the CMU campus. Free
shuttle service is available from the hotel to the CMU campus.
To get to the Holiday Inn from the Pittsburgh airport, we highly
recommend taking a taxi or bus.
For those arriving at Pittsburgh International Airport, one
of the easiest ways to get to the University is by bus .
From the main terminal area, follow the signs for "Ground Transportation."
The Airport Shuttle Bus serves many of the hotels in the Oakland
Area. (The university is situated in the part of Pittsburgh called
Oakland, about ten minutes from downtown and thirty minutes from
the Airport.) Buses (ask for the Oakland bus) leave approximately
once an hour on week days, less frequently at weekends, from the
lower level of the airport and cost $12.50. The shuttle bus stops
at the Best Western, the Hampton Inn (on request), the Holiday
Inn and at Webster Hall, one block away from the music department.
The last shuttle bus to Oakland leaves the airport at 9 pm on
An even cheaper alternative is to take public transportation
. The Port Authority of Allegheny County operates an airport
bus (designated 28X) which runs to Oakland approximately every
30 minutes. The price for this service is around $2, and the trip
to Pitt takes around 45 minutes. For specific schedules, see
bus schedule (Get off at the Oakland/Pitt University Exit,
Forbes and Schenley).
There are also a number of taxi services available
at the airport.
