GETTING THERE

 

Pittsburgh International Airport

    ADDRESS: 1000 Airport Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA 15231

  • ONLINE: www.flypittsburgh.com
  • LOCATION: 18.7 miles west of the Wyndham Grand Hotel
  • TRANSPORTATION: 28X is the magic number when traveling to Pittsburgh. While the city’s airport lies some 20 miles away from downtown, the 28X Airport Flyer bus makes your trip to the conference hotel quick and easy. Leaving from outside door 6 in baggage claim, the 28X stops at Liberty Avenue and Wood Street, a five minute walk from the hotel. And if you’re returning to the airport by yourself, the return bus stops just outside the Wyndham Hotel. The cost? $2.75 each way. The bus runs every thirty minutes, Monday through Saturday. There are other options, from cabs to limos. But if you want a fast, friendly trip from the airport to the hotel, take the 28X Airport Flyer.
