Airport Transportation: We recommend you take a shuttle bus to your hotel (cost ~$20). From San Francisco and San Jose airports call: Super Shuttle at (650) 558-8500 (http://supershuttle.com/sfo.htm) or Bay Porter at (650) 467-1800 (http://bayporter.com). From San Jose airport only, call Airport Shuttle at (408) 225-4444). Accessible vans can be requested from these services. A taxi will cost approximately $40 from either airport.

For the Stanford Motor Inn, get off at the end of the line at Page Mill Road and walk down El Camino Real 2 blocks; the hotel is on your left.

For more information on all these options, check the web site for Bay Area public transit: http://transitinfo.org

Rental Car Information: If you rent a car at the airport, it is highly recommended to take Highway 280 rather than 101 to avoid traffic problems. Directions to the hotels are listed with each hotel.

Parking at the Conference: If possible, leave you car at the hotel since the conference provides bus shuttles to and from the conference. However, if you will be driving to the conference site on campus and need on-campus parking, please let us know beforehand. We will arrange for free parking for you if we are notified at the time of your advance-registration. When you arrive at the Conference, we will give you a 'C' permit, which you will need to hang in your car to avoid a fine. We may have a few extra permits available if you notify us only when you arrive. If you need to park at parking meters, the cost is $1 per hour (bring lots of quarters). Please check http://www.stanford.edu/home/visitors/ for directions and maps. The closest parking is in the Parking Structure near the Medical Center. For those of you driving to the VA Rehabilitation R&D Center for the Friday lunch, posters and hardware demos rather than taking the shuttle bus, there is no parking permit required.
