Alternative transportation

If you are traveling outside the free shuttle hours, consider using Blue Star Shuttle—a shared ride van service—at 800.247.2272.  Alternatively many car rental services are located at the airport.  If you are renting a car, consider offering rides to other travelers so that we can minimize traffic impact in the Gorge.

During the meeting, for attendees staying at Bonneville Hot Springs Resort & Spa or the Best Western in Cascade Locks, there will be attendee-driven ride share for those without cars.    If you will be needing transportation from these sites, you may contact Rachel Hoyt in advance at and she will coordinate the ride shares.

Meals/ dining

All meals Wednesday through Saturday morning are provided. For those arriving Tuesday night, please note that there are limited dining options in the vicinity. In both Stephenson and Hood River (the closest towns) most restaurants close by 9 or 10pm.  There are restaurants (open until 10pm) and a bar at Skamania Lodge; consider reserving a table for Tuesday night or eating in Portland.
