Shuttle Information

If you are staying at the Hilton Garden Inn, local firefighters can meet you and your family as your arrive by plane, train, or bus on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, October 4 – 6, and take you to your hotel between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. We will offer return service back to the airport, train, or bus station between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m on Sunday, October 9, or Monday, October 10. If you are traveling outside these time frames, if you choose to take other transportation from the airport or station, or if you are not staying at the Hilton Garden Inn, you will be responsible for making your own arrangements and paying all costs.

To request shuttle transportation, we need a copy of your travel itinerary and the travel information listed below.

We must know in advance if you plan to use this service, as shuttles are only scheduled on an as-needed basis. Shuttle service is only available for returning survivors. Department personnel attending the Weekend are responsible for their own transportation arrangements.
