TRANSPORTATION TO DETROIT (DTW)

AIRPLANE
The Detroit Metro Airport (DTW, a major Delta Hub) is one of the newest and most efficient airports in North America. With two new passenger terminals, 145 gates, six jet runways, and two modern Federal Inspection Services facilities for international arrivals. Detroit Metro Airport is one of the busiest hubs in the world that offers more than 160 non-stop flights around the globe.


TRAIN
If you enjoy train travel and are coming from Chicago, the Amtrak ride from Union Station to Detroit runs through small rural towns that dot Michigan's picturesque farm country. A round trip ticket is approximately $66.00. Once you step off of the train in Detroit, taxis will be available to take you to a conference-designated Greektown hotel, located 10-minutes away. One thing to note is that the trains are fast and convenient, but often late.


BUS
Megabus also offers a convenient and low cost way to have someone else at the wheel so you can sit back and relax. The Megabus Detroit terminal is one block from the Michigan Avenue People Mover, which will take you to Greektown for 75 cents. The Megabus leaves from a variety of cities with fares as low as $1.00 if booked in advance!

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION

Detroit is called the MotorCity for a reason, and it is easiest to negotiate the city by car. We encourage conference participants to carpool between the airport and Downtown Detroit.

For those who prefer to drive themselves, parking spaces in an on-campus structure, located two-minute away from the McGregor Conference Center, will be available for conference attendees at a rate of $6.50/day.

 

Please note that on Friday and Saturday afternoons and evenings the entire Downtown/Midtown areas of Detroit will be extremely congested due to the D'LECTRICITY 2 event.

Additionally, shuttle buses have been arranged to run between the conference designated hotels and the McGregor Conference Center, which is located on the campus of Wayne State University, as well as to any associated conference events.
