Getting Here:
Flying
Both Boston and Providence (TF Green) airports are about 1.5 hours from Woods Hole. Boston Logan airport has public transportation options available, whereas getting to Woods Hole from the Providence airport requires a car. If your travel is to be covered by the workshop grant, please make your reservations as soon as possible. You can make reservations directly or contact our travel agent. (You will be given that contact information in an e-mail by April 23.) 
Plenary speakers and all others who will have travel costs covered must travel on U.S. Carriers, as per the Fly America Act. Funding for this workshop comes from the OCB office, which is funded by NSF, NASA and NOAA which require US carriers to be used when possible. For questions or special circumstances, please contact Trish White (pwhite@whoi.edu) before flights are booked.
From Logan Airport
Peter Pan Bus lines picks up at Logan and has a stop one block away from the hotel. Please note that the last bus from Logan to Falmouth departs at 7:30pm.  If the Peter Pan schedule is not convenient, another option is to take the Plymouth Brockton Bus which has hourly buses between Logan and the Sagamore Bridge. From the sagamore Bridge the hotel is 25 minutes by car, (see taxi number below.)
