Q/A: Bus Service from the Airport
Q: What are the plans for bus service
for those lodges flying into Iowa?
A: Special arrangements have been made for
airport shuttle service for the 2004 NOAC. The service
will be available for airport pickup (only) on
Saturday, July 31 with a return
to the airport (only) on Thursday morning, August 5th. Those using the
shuttle service should book a flight to get into the Des Moines
preferably by 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 31 and
book a return flight on Thursday, August 5th
as early in the day as possible.
You should make your plans based upon the
available flights from your home airports and then enter your requests
for the shuttle on the event online registration web site,
in the "Update Travel Details" section of the
contingent leader page.
If your lodge is coming in split groups, the ability
to enter the various arrival/departure times, flights, and quantity
of people is available.
The cost for the round
trip transportation from the Des Moines airport to ISU and back will
be $25 per person.
The shuttle will operate on a regular basis and will take you directly
to the NOAC registration area at the university. The shuttles will be
picking up riders (about 40 people per bus) on the lower (main)
level outside of the baggage claim area. IU and NOAC representatives
will be in that area of the airport to assist you to the bus loading
platform. Please be prepared to provide confirmation of your group
request when loading onto the shuttle.
