    Getting from the airport to your hotel

    Note: most hotels do not offer shuttle service.

  • Option A: We recommends taking the Metrolink from the airport to your hotel. The one-way cost is $2.25 or you can purchase a weekly pass for your full stay during the conference for $25. From either airport terminal, follow the signs to the Metrolink. Purchase either your one-way ticket or your weekly pass from the kiosk. One-way tickets should be validated for two hours. If not, stick the ticket in the validation machine on the platform. The weekly pass is good for the whole week. Take the Metrolink Eastbound to the station closest to your hotel. NOTE: If you are staying at the Crowne Plaza, Residence Inn, Knight Center, University Dorms or another hotel in Clayton, Richmond Heights or Brentwood, you will take the Metrolink to the Forest Park station, and switch trains there to take the Blue line Westbound to the Big Bend, Forsyth, Clayton, Richmond Heights or Brentwood stops.
