  1. I would like to share rides from the Reno Airport to the Conference on April 28 and then back again to the airport on May 1. I am traveling from and back to Phoenix. Please let me know if you are interested.

  2. I am getting in at about 10am on 4/28 and leaving at 4 pm on 5/1. It looks like there is a shuttle we can book, and the rates go down depending on the number of passengers. Please let me know if you would like to book a shuttle together.

    • Hi Michele. I decided to rent a car and I’d be happy to drive you–and one or two others if anyone else wants in. I arrive at 11:23am on Friday 4/28 and will pick up my rental car at the airport. For the return trip, I’m not sure the timing will work as well since my flight doesn’t leave until 8 pm. Feel free to email me and we can work out the details. Same for anyone else looking for a ride. JLBerney@gmail.com

  3. Thanks Jennifer. That sounds like it could work, at least on front end. I’m happy to pick up part of rental expense! Thanks. Michele
