TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM THE HOUSTON AIRPORTS


AIRPORT SHUTTLE SERVICE

The Airport 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 area hotels. The trip takes about an hour, depending on traffic, from Houston Intercontinental, and about 20 minutes from Hobby.

At Houston 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.

To contact Airport Express, call (713) 523-8888.
