2007 Conference - Transportation
One-Hundred-Fifth Annual Conference
November 2-3, 2007
Western Washington University
Transportation to Bellingham
Bellingham has a small airport, served by two commercial airlines: Alaska Airlines and Western Airlines.
Bellingham is about 50 miles south of Vancouver, B.C., but because of heightened security at the Canadian/U.S. border, flying to Vancouver is not recommended, except perhaps for Canadian citizens.
Another transportation option is to fly to Seattle and take the airport shuttle to Bellingham or rent a car. The shuttle requires reservations, which you can make online (www.airporter.com). The drive from SeaTac to Bellingham usually takes around two hours, if you can avoid traveling during rush hour.
Transportation to Western Washington University
You will be able to park on Western's campus for $10 on Friday and for free on Saturday. The only lots available to conference participants, however, will be the "C" lots, which are quite a distance from the Viking Union and the classrooms where the sessions will take place. You might find it more convenient to take the shuttle from the Lakeway Inn to campus or travel by taxi from your hotel. All of the hotels, except for the Ramada Inn, are near the campus. (Please check the website of the parking office on Western’s campus for details: www.ps.wwu.edu/parking)
