Shuttle Information and Registration
CYJ is approximately a 50-minute drive from the nearest airport, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. For your travel convenience, the IIQTC has arranged for a one-time shuttle to run from the Austin airport to CYJ on September 6th and again one time from CYJ to Austin airport on September 13th.
While there is a fee to reserve your seat, the fee is less than paying for a taxi ride. Note that a taxi would cost approximately $104.00 (before tip), one way only. You may choose to register for a Round-Trip shuttle fare ($155.00), or a One-Way shuttle fare ($85.00), depending on your needs.
In order to take advantage of this shuttle service, please make your flight arrangements according to the scheduling parameters below:
September 6, 2013: Flight must arrive at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport no later than 2:30 pm
September 13, 2013: Flight must depart Austin-Bergstrom International Airport 3:00 pm or later
These times are critical for your on-time arrival at the retreat center on September 6, 2013, as well as to safeguard against missing your outbound flight following course completion on September 13, 2013. While we have found that this time frame can accommodate many people, we realize it may not be able to accommodate everyone. Because important itinerary details are needed to complete your reservation, please do not register for the Shuttle until you have made your flight arrangements accordingly.
Important Note: Please plan your travel carefully around the time parameters noted. Our reservation with the shuttle service is guaranteed and non-refundable, so we are unable to refund due to missed flights or late arrivals.
Once you have made your flight arrangements (according to the guidelines noted above), please register here for the Shuttle Service. You will first be asked for your itinerary information; once you "Submit" these details you will be taken to a page where you can pay for your reservation.
If you are unable to take advantage of this Shuttle, please do make your travel arrangements so you can arrive at CYJ around 4:00 pm on September 6th. You are encouraged to unpack, unwind, and join the group for dinner prior to the first evening's training session.
