Getting to NASSR on a Grad Budget

I just booked my ticket to the conference this morning (this is Kirstyn here). Partly, I’d been waiting in vain for plane fare from Denver to Vancouver to miraculously drop below $500, and for the conference program to come out. However, thanks to the genius suggestion from my fellow CU-Boulder colleague John Leffel, I have found a way to get to NASSR for under $350:

Fly into Seattle (Sea-Tac) airport, then take Quick Shuttle to my Vancouver hotel.

If you’re going to do this, be sure to leave about 5-6 hours for the shuttle ride. Luckily, they advertise having free wifi. And don’t forget your passport, as obviously you will be crossing the border on the shuttle.

My plane ticket to Seattle was $250, then it looks like a round-trip student commuter bus ticket from Sea-Tac to Vancouver (and back again on Sunday) is $70-ish. You can also get 5% off of your booking price if you book your shuttle ticket online. My math is pretty awful, but I’m certain that’s cheaper than a $500-600 plane ticket. Hope this helps!
