Welcome!

Following is logistical information to start your planning for the Coastal Carbon Synthesis (CCARS) Workshop here in Woods Hole, August 19-21, 2014. The meeting will be held in room 507 in the Clark Building on the Quissett Campus of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.  We will be paying for your lodging (we pay these costs directly to the hotels). We will also be covering your meals served at the meeting, which includes 3 breakfasts, 3 lunches, one evening reception with hors d'oeuvres, and the workshop dinner.


Hotel Information
Mary Zawoysky will make your hotel reservation based on your registration information and also keep the lodging lists for both  hotels, so you should not call the hotels to make a reservation. However, if you cancel at the last minute (the weekend prior to the start of the meeting), it is your responsibility to contact the hotel to let them know. Please call Mary at 508-289-2834 or e-mail her at mzawoysky@whoi.edu if you have any questions. We will have a shuttle bus circulating around the hotels to transport you to/from the meeting. 

Lodging will be at the following hotels:

Inn on the Square in Falmouth (508-457-0606)
Holiday Inn Falmouth in Falmouth (508-540-2000)


DRIVING DIRECTIONS:
If driving, from the Holiday Inn, make a left out of the entrance, go to the second red light and make a left and the Quissett Campus is about 2.5  miles down the road on the left. Make a left onto the campus and then another left at the Stop sign and you will see the parking lot to your right shortly afterwards. If driving from the Inn on the Square, take a right out of the parking lot and stay on that road for about 4 miles. Make a left onto the campus and then another left at the Stop sign and you will see the parking lot to your right shortly afterwards. 

Ground Transportation

Ground transportation between Boston and Woods Hole
We recommend the following services to get between Boston and Woods Hole, and we will be happy to reimburse those fares.

The bus from the Boston airport http://peterpanbus.com has a stop close to the  Inn on the Square in Falmouth so if you won't have a car those would be your best choice. Put in Boston Logan Airport or T.F. Green Airport and then  Falmouth on their web site to get the correct schedule. The bus stop for "scheduled buses" can be found right outside each terminal at Boston Logan Airport. Also you do not have to reserve the ticket on-line ahead for a set bus, you can buy it on the bus and use the ticket back on any bus. If you take the Peter Pan Bus and you are staying at the Holiday Inn, you will require a taxi from the Falmouth bus station. You can call Falmouth Taxi at 508-548-3100 or All Seasons Taxi at 508-548-9990.

Providence T.F. Green Airport Link

There are other methods to travel the ~90-minute trip from the airports to Falmouth such as the GoGreen Shuttle, White Tie Limousine, Enterprise and National car rentals, and taxis.  It is best to contact Mary Zawoysky at mzawoysky@whoi.edu to make those arrangements since she can get you our discount.

We have set up a Google Docs spreadsheet to help participants coordinate (amongst themselves) ride sharing or booking group taxis/shuttles.

Please note that due to budget restrictions, we cannot guarantee reimbursement for car rentals at this time. We will assess the state of the budget after the meeting and do our best to reimburse everyone's travel expenses in full.
