Transporation

The next combined AeroCom /AeroSAT workshop
at NOAA at College Park MD, USA (near Wash DC)
from Oct 15 to 19, 2018.

a brief overview of meeting location, near-by
public transportation stations and
the distance to the recommended local hotel
(a block reservation will be held there until
the beginning of August ... more on this soon)
is presented below in the Initiates file downloadlocal map

there is limited/partial bus service between
hotel and meeting venue

 

There is a shuttle running from UMD campus
to the Metro station that stops at the corner
with the hotel.  This is a frequent shuttle,
every 7-10 minutes during our hours of interest.
Unfortunately it stops at the Metro station and
does not continue to the meeting venue (so you will
have to walk from the METRO station).

 

 

There is, however, another shuttle that runs between
the Metro station and the meeting venue. This shuttle
is less frequent and runs mornings until 8:45 and
afternoons, 3-5:45. (outside those times you may have
to walk).
