PAMLA 2018 Conference Transportation and Shuttle Info

PAMLA 2018 Conference Transportation and Shuttle Information

Transportation to Western Washington University/Four Points by Sheraton Bellingham/Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Bellingham

You may fly directly to the Bellingham Airport (or indirectly--we've seen roundtrips in the neighborhood of $400), or fly into Sea-Tac (Seattle-Tacoma International Airport) and then rent a car or take a Bellair Shuttle (be sure to make a reservation ahead of time) to get to Bellingham (a drive of a bit more than 90 minutes). Or, you can fly into Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada, so you will need your passport, of course), and then drive or shuttle south across the international border to Bellingham (a bit less than a 90 minute drive).

The Bellair Airporter Shuttle has shuttles from SeaTac (Seattle Airport) to the Four Points by Sheraton Bellingham Hotel and to the Bellingham Airport (across the street from the Holiday Inn). You will need to reserve ahead of time:  1-866-235-5247. Visit the Bellair Airporter Shuttle Website for more information about schedules and pricing (currently $80 round-trip, less for seniors) and to make a reservation:

Complimentary PAMLA Shuttle

Shuttle service is complimentary for PAMLA members. Do please plan to arrive at your destination early as the shuttle could get delayed; arrive a bit early as well at the shuttle pickup spot.

PAMLA does not guarantee that the shuttle will be available—shuttles could be delayed, could break down, and could fill. You are wise to plan extra time to get to your destination in case of any shuttle problems.
