Code4Lib conference attendees:
Since the price of taxi service from the airport is pretty steep (I've heard $40 taxi ride one way), the WCU and ASU libraries are looking at ways to help. We are planning to provide a limited van shuttle service for the Code4Lib conference coming and going to the Asheville airport. (We need a good name...perhaps the Air2Hot Van) We now have access to two minivans that can hold maximum of 6 passengers with their bags per trip.
A Asheville Airport to Hotel Van Manifest has been drafted for the van loads based on flight information provided by attendees on the Rideshare wiki. Check out http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/Asheville_Airport_to_Hotel_Van_Manifest to see what we have created. In addition, we are requesting that passengers wanting to use this service provide us with their email and cell phone information so we can contact you directly. Please send this information to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> to confirm your spot. We will update the "confirmed" column in the table so you know we have received it.
We only have a limited space on these two vans so make sure your information is correct. Please check both your flight arrival and departure times.
We hope to provide a ride for everyone to/from the airport that needs it but only for Sunday-Friday. We suspect that there might be many more attendees needing rides during this period then have currently signed up for on the wiki. We will attempt to accommodate all those that have signed up but we only have the two vans and it's an hour and a half roundtrip to the hotel. Priority will be given to those how have already signed up right now. We will do our best with anyone who adds their info after this message is sent out. First check out the table to see what spots we have left in the current load runs.
If the van is filled or doesn't currently run during your needed time slot, please add your information to the bottom of the rideshare page http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/C4L2010rideshare . We will look to see if we can accommodate your requests in our schedule. Please don't add loads to the manifest document yourself. We will monitor the rideshare list and add runs as we are able. Email me directly if you have any questions.
We are working with the Guest Services and Ground Transportation Desk at the Asheville Airport baggage claim area to coordinating the pickup location for our vans. More information about this will be forthcoming directly to your provided email and cell phone info.
Looking forwards to seeing you all in person. Feedback is welcome.
