Go Congress Joseki: Transportation & Parking

Sunday July 24, 2011

How do I get from the Santa Barbara Airport to the Congress?
UCSB will provide a free shuttle to and from the Santa Barbara Airport for Congress attendees. Call 805-893-2772 when you arrive, and the shuttle will pick you up shortly.  Attendees arriving on Friday, July 29 may also use this shuttle service.  Depending on the number of attendees needing these shuttles, shuttles may be available on other days as well.  This shuttle will only drop off at the Santa Rosa Residence Hall, steps from registration.

How do I get from the Goleta Amtrak station to the Congress?

We recommend taking a taxi.  Using public transportation includes a one mile walk that most attendees will probably want to avoid.

How do I get from LAX to the Congress?
The Congress has arranged with Santa Barbara Airbus for group transportation on their regular shuttles. Mention the US Go Congress to receive the lowest price: $28 per person one-way.  Santa Barbara Airbus will add a stop at UCSB, but will not make additional pick ups or drop offs.

Do I need a parking permit?
YES. All Congress attendees will receive an Unloading Permit in their email.  If you do not receive an unloading permit, please contact for a second permit.
