Getting to Corvallis from PORTLAND
Sunday, September 11th Flying into Portland (PDX) is typically the most cost effective option with the most available flights, and there is a dependable shuttle service run by HUT Shuttle to get you to Corvallis (the Hilton Garden Inn).
RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED for HUT Shuttle!
A comparable alternative is an Enterprise rental car — they have cars right at the terminal. If you are interested in rideshare please use the ride share page.
Getting to Corvallis from EUGENE
Flying into Eugene may be an option for some folks, and it is only an hour from Corvallis. Here is a link to the Eugene Airport so you can explore rental car and other transportation options. The OMNI Shuttle Service provides door to door shuttle service from the Eugene Airport to Corvallis. Reservations are required. And I know that some folks will just be driving in – we’ll ask you to identify yourselves when you ‘register.’
We officially start classes on Monday morning, September 14, 8:00am, at the International Living/Learning Center.
Sunday Evening, September 11, 2016: On Sunday evening, I will host a gathering at the hotel, in order to start getting to know the group (or at least those that have arrived by a reasonable hour).
Getting home – Friday, September 23, 2016: We will adjourn after lunch on Friday – targeting 11:45am.
Again, we can help facilitate bundles of people into rental cars — it is a two full hours to PDX but a quick car drop and walk into the terminal. It is less then one hour to the Eugene airport. Portland departures: HUT shuttle departs Corvallis at 12:00pm, arriving at PDX at 2:30pm. Allow two hours for check in and security.
RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED
Eugene departures: We can look at this as a group and schedule departures through OMNI Shuttle for those that need transportation. Check-in and security can probably be cleared in 1.5 hours.
