Houston has two airports: William P. Hobby (HOU), 11 miles to the south of campus and George Bush Intercontinental (IAH), 24 miles to the north.

Most major rental car companies have locations at both airports. SuperShuttle and taxis provide ground transportation services from both airports.

Ground Transportation:
The BioScience Research Collaborative (BRC) is only a 30 minute drive from Hobby Airport and 45 minutes from Bush Intercontinental Airport. The cost for taxi service is approximately $40 from Hobby and $60 from Bush. Both taxi and shuttle services are located on the baggage claim levels. 

The Hilton Houston Plaza/Medical Center is the official hotel for the conference. Rice University will negotiate a rate for this event.
