The 2015 AOU/COS conference will be on the University of Oklahoma campus, which is about 20 miles and 40 minutes from the nearest airport (OKC). To reduce costs, we recommend you seek out other conference attendees arriving to OKC around the same time and share rides in rental cars or taxis. The recommended taxi service is Airport Express. They will transport groups of five to the OU campus for $50 ($38 for the first person and $3 for each additional). There may also be a $1 off coupon posted online soon (check back here or on the meeting website for updates). Reservations are not required for Airport Express if you are leaving from the airport (they always have a bunch of vehicles waiting). However you do need to make arrangements for a ride from OU to the airport (405-681-3311 or 877-688-3311, www.airportexpressokc.com)

 

Anyway, If you are looking to share a ride or find riders to/from the OKC, please post your name, the date and approximate time, whether you are going to or from OKC, and any other pertinent info like whether you will have a rental car. You should probably exchange phone numbers and such afterward by email.

I am interested in sharing an Airport Express shuttle. I arrive in OKC at 2:00 pm on Monday July 27.  I would need to leave OU on Sunday Aug 2 by around 8:00 am.  

Thanks! Barb Kus

I land in OKC at 4:50pm on Monday and fly out at 9:30am on Sunday. I am interested in sharing a ride either or both directions, and I'm willing to wait an hour or two on Monday or leave an hour or two earlier on Sunday if necessary.

Hi - I too would be interested in sharing a ride from campus to the airport on Sunday morning. It sounds like two people other than myself have flights that leave around 9:30. What if we arranged to be picked up at 7:30, so we'd be at the airport around 8:15? I usually prefer to leave a buffer for traffic or long lines at security, so this seems like it would be good timing. Who's in?

I arrive Monday at 3:46 and would want to leave the airport promptly after that.  I don't have to leave campus on Sunday until noon.  Would be glad to share if your timiing fits (one or both ways).

I arrive Monday at 3:21 pm and willing to wait 20-30 minutes if necessary.

 

I depart Sunday at 11:40 am, and so need to leave campus between 9:30-10:00 am.

Hi all - it sounds like there are four of us now who would be interested in a shuttle from campus to the airport at 7:30 am on Sunday, Aug. 2nd. I'm going to go ahead and make a reservation. Please get in touch so that you can either confirm or let me know if you have a change in plans! katepell33@gmail.com

I arrive at 2:30 PM on Monday July 27 and would be happy to ride-share from OKC to meeting site as well.

You may not want to wait an hour, but I get in at 3:20 and am interested in sharing.  If not, no worries.

I'm not leaving until Monday, August 3 (fairly late in the day due to flight schedules). Anyone else headed to the airport that day, maybe other people staying for field trips? I'd need to be at the airport by mid-afternoon but would be happy to get there earlier to fit someone else's schedule. Email me at rebecca.heisman@gmail.com.

I arrive in Oklahoma City on Monday, 7/27 at 4:30 PM, and would love to share a ride to campus.

Hi there. I think you are the only other person so far that's arriving close to when I do. I am arriving at 4:50pm. If you don't mind waiting a bit, we could share a ride. Shoot me an email (qureshlatif@yahoo.com) or call (951-836-1141) to confirm and coordinate.
