Dear Conference Attendees,
Here is information on transportation possibilities to and from the Houston Area Airports and the Galvez Hotel. Keep in mind that HOU are the call letters for Hobby Airport and IAH is for George Bush International. Rates on all possibilities are less from Hobby; it is possible to mix roundtrips if you fly in and out of different airports.
- Car rentals, Uber, and Lyft, as well as regular taxi service operate out of both airports.
- ASI has negotiated favorable rates with Galveston Limo Service.
The BEST and LEAST EXPENSIVE option for normal-sized parties is the Shared Shuttle option offered by Galveston Limo. The roundtrip cost per person is $50.00 from IAH and $40.00 from HOU. A mixed trip would be $55.00. The shuttles can accommodate all luggage and collapsible wheelchairs.
IAD/HOU. They also offer everything from Sedans ($ 175/$145 each way) and SUV’s ($195/$165 each way) for individuals and smaller parties up to vans for 10 people ($265/$205 each way) and even small buses accommodating 20 ($405/335 each way) or 27 ($425/$395 each way). You can find details about these options on the Web Site.
When you book, you will have to provide specific flight information. Galveston Limo will respond with very clear instructions – times, locations, etc. If you have specific concerns about accessibility, call the number listed above and push #4 for the office. MAKE SURE IN ALL CONTACTS TO MENTION ALSTROM SYNDROME INTERNATIONAL.
Please note: ASI is ONLY handling transportation for a few foreign travelers and for those individuals with tricky accessibility issues.
