UPON ARRIVING AT YOUR CONFERENCE FRONT DESK (CFD)
Upon arriving at your CFD for check-in, it’s a good idea to have your driver wait for you, just in case you need to be driven to your residence afterwards. This recommendation is based on the fact that some campus residences arc located a few minutes from their CFD, thereby making it potentially challenging to travel on foot while carrying heavy luggage. For maps of our different CFDs and the residences they service, visit the following web site: www.stanford.edu/dept/hds/scs/area/mapsAl 12.html.

Note: As of the publication of this document, maps appearing on the above-referenced URL were in the process of being updated for summer 2011. Please check URL periodically for summer 2011 updates.

ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO GET AROUND
Reducing single-occupant vehicles and peak-hour vehicle trips is a priority at Stanford in keeping with the university’s sustainability and General Use Permit goals. As such, please minimize event vehicle traffic and avoid, to the extent possible, event times that create peak-hour vehicle trips:
• Avoid arrivals between 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
• Avoid departures between 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Parking & Transportation Services can help plan an alternative commute to Stanford for your event or for individual event participants. For information or to request a customized alternative commute plan or plans for your event send an email to commuteclubfaistanford.edu or call (650) 723-9362.

Airport Transportation
Stanford University is conveniently located near three regional airports. Please review the “Airport Transportation” web page for alternative transportation options to and from regional airports: transportation.stanford.edu/airport.

Transit
The Bay Area has an extensive public transportation network, which attendees should be encouraged to use. A full list of local public transportation options, including VTA, SamTrans, Caltrain, BART, Muni, and more, can be found at transportation.stanford.edu/transit.

Ensure attendees know what transit options are available to them and consider providing a free transit pass with event registration. Event attendees can plan their trip by transit using the free 511 transit trip planner: www.511.org. Parking & Transportation Services (P&TS) can develop a list of transit, bike, and carpool options specifically for your event. Send an email to commuteclub@stanford.edu.

Stanford’s Free Marguerite Shuttle
Stanford’s free Marguerite buses travel around campus, connect to transit, and travel to nearby hotels, shopping, dining, and entertainment. The main shuttle lines operate Monday – Friday throughout the year, (excluding university holidays), from roughly 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Since start and end times vary by line, check specific Marguerite schedules at transportation.stanford.edu/marguerite/

Evening and weekend service is available from September through mid-June on the Midnight Express and Shopping Express lines. All buses are wheelchair accessible and have bicycle racks.
• Marguerite Shuttle information: marguerite.Stanford.edu
• Real-time Marguerite map: transportation.stanford.edu/margucritc/

We ask that if you expect to have a large group of event attendees travel on the system that you give us a call so we can discuss system capacity. In some cases an extra bus may need to be added to meet event demands, at a cost to the event.

Event attendees are encouraged to use the online map and schedule to reduce printed publications that may be used only once, then thrown away. If, however, you want to order Marguerite Maps and Schedules for your event, send an email to marguerite@stanford.edu or call (650) 723-9362.
