We will be utilizing UMBC Transit for transportation throughout the conference. UMBC Transit is a Department in the Division of Student Affairs and provides safe, reliable and responsive shuttle and charter bus services to the UMBC Community. All UMBC Transit buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts or low floor ramps to allow access for those that need it.
UMBC Transit has made some positive changes to support sustainability and environment conservation efforts. The Bus Stop shelters on campus were replaced with modern “green” solar powered units. Currently they support the campus Climate Change Task Force and are focusing on reducing UMBC’s carbon footprint by upgrading almost all of their current fleet to more fuel efficient vehicles. They are using a blended biodiesel fuel that is low sulfur and allows them to be more efficient.
The BWI Marriott has a free shuttle service from the BWI airport to their hotel that all conference guests will be able to use. Additionally, their shuttle service will take our delegates to local restaurants that are within a 3-mile radius.
