We will be running shuttles to and from the various venues where conference
events are taking place. Depending on the events that you are attending, and
whether or not you have access to a car, you may need to sign up for only some of
the shuttle services. Space is limited so it is important that we get an accurate count
for each shuttle.
Here is some information to help you decide which shuttles you
may need to sign up for on the conference registration form.
Thursday Shuttle Service From the Hotel to San Francisco Public Library
We will only be running a very limited shuttle service from the hotel to the San
Francisco Public Library
for the Members Exhibition reception. If you are going on
one of the optional San Francisco tours, or if you are planning to do some Thursday
sightseeing on your own in the city, you will not need to sign up for this shuttle. If
you are taking the East Bay
tour or checking into the hotel on Thursday
afternoon, you may want to sign up for this shuttle. The San Francisco Public Library
is easily accessible on BART so the conference shuttle is not the only way to get
there from the east bay. BART can be accessed from the hotel by using the free
EMERY-GO-ROUND shuttle. The hotel also offers free shuttle service within a 3-mile
radius of the hotel, which includes a BART station.
Thursday Shuttle Service From the San Francisco Public Library to the Hotel
We will only be running a very limited shuttle service from the San Francisco
Public Library back to the hotel after the Members Exhibition
evening is an opportunity to have dinner at one of the many fine restaurants in San
Francisco and we are assuming that many people will want to take advantage of
already being in the city. It is easy to get back to the hotel by taking BART, and then
taking the free EMERY-GO-ROUND
shuttle or taking a short cab ride between the
BART station and the hotel.
Friday Shuttle Service From the Hotel to Mills College
The first full day of the conference will take place at Mills College
. If you are not
renting a car, or have access to a car during the conference, we suggest that you sign
up for this shuttle as Mills College is not easy to get to via public transportation.
Friday Shuttle Service From Mills College to the Hotel
If you need a ride back to the hotel at the end of the conference day, you should sign
up for this shuttle. Those groups making dinner plans may find it easier to get to
various restaurants from the hotel rather than from Mills.
