For those arriving by air, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) is about 12 miles southwest of Public Square, the location of the conference hotel.�A taxi to downtown costs about $20 and takes about twenty minutes. However, it is also easy to hop on a Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) train, which costs $2.25 and takes 25 minutes to get you to the Terminal Tower, about a five minute walk from the Marriott. You can board the RTA “Red Line” from inside the airport (there’s only one line, and it goes only one direction), get off at the Tower City station, which connects inside to the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.�You can also take a taxi from Tower City for the very short ride to the Marriott. Schedules for all RTA lines are available online.
Amtrak also serves Cleveland, but be forewarned that trains from both the East and the West arrive and depart the city in the wee hours of the morning.
If you plan to drive to Cleveland, the city is easy to reach via Interstates 80, 90, 71, or 77.
