Travel to College Station

Easterwood is the local airport of College Station (symbol CLL). It is served by American Airlines from Dallas Fort Worth Airport (symbol DFW) with 10 daily flights. From Houston International Airport (symbol IAH) 3 daily roundtrip flights are scheduled by Continental Airlines. The Amerisuites Hotel has a complimentary shuttle bus, which picks up guests arriving at the local airport. College Station is 95 miles northwest from Houston International Airport and 105 miles from Austin, considerably further from Dallas. If you are trying to find College Station on the map, it is located 6 miles south of the larger city of Bryan.

Local Transportation and Parking

University shuttle buses will provide local transportation during the workshop and its related activities. Since we need to know how many persons require bus transportation, please indicate this on your registration.

Those of you arriving by car can drive to the MSC parking garage, adjacent to the Workshop site. Since the Workshop is held during the University’s spring break week, ample parking is expected. Parking fees are $2/hr for the first two hours, after that $1/hr per hour. As an alternative, a reserved parking place is available for $15/day; call 979-862-6585.

For our site tours on March 14 and March 15 all participants are requested to use the bus service, due to parking limitations at the sites.
