TRANSPORTATION & DIRECTIONS (information courtesy of Local Retreat Organizer Eduard Hovy and Assistants Laura Alford and Stefan Hadricky)
Transportation from the Pittsburgh International Airport to CMU (arrival)
Due to the many varied arrival times, group transportation from the Pittsburgh International Airport to Carnegie Mellon University has not been pre-arranged.
1- Taxi (~$65)
2 – Pittsburgh Port Authority Bus: 28x-Airport Flyer
(~$3.75 and leaves the airport every 30 minutes just before thehour. There is no other bus so it is easy to locate, just behind the taxi area. The hotel (Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh University Place) is at 3454 Forbes Avenue in Oakland, and the bus runs right past the hotel on Forbes Avenue. The trip takes about an hour. A timetable/schedule is attached).

Hotel (Hilton) to the Campus (Retreat LOCATION: Gates Hillman Complex — 4902 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213)
The Hilton Hotel does provide a shuttle for guests traveling within a 3 mile radius (which includes CMU). However, guests would have to sign up for this service upon check in, and it only fits 11 at a time.
CMU was able to reserve the hotel shuttle for between 20 to 25 people at 7:30 am on Saturday March 21st , to bring attendees to CMU (unfortunately, that shuttle is not available on Friday March 20, but the hotel does have another shuttle that leaves once every hour that guests can request upon check in).
Attendees can also walk, if they wish. CMU is located only 0.9 miles away.
