Free shuttle services are provided by both the Hilton and the Concourse hotels. A phone bank with direct phone lines to most area hotels is located near the baggage claim area of the airport.

Taxis are generally available at the airport if you do not desire to wait for a hotel shuttle or if you are staying in the student dormitory. A typical cab ride to downtown takes 15 minutes depending on time of day and costs $15 - $20. If a taxi is not already waiting outside you can contact one to pick you up.
