When are you arriving?


There is an airport shuttle from the Lexington Bluegrass Airport to the conference hotels. There is a $20 round trip charge. If you only use it one-way, the charge is still $20. Please provide airport information when you register for the conference if you need to be picked up or returned. If you are renting a car at the airport and do not need to be picked up or returned, there is not need to provide airport information. (Should you need to arrive at either the Northern Kentucky-Cincinnati Airport, or the Louisville Airport, we can no longer provide any services from these airports.) Note that the bus service attempts to minimize travel expenses, so you may have to wait a while for other travelers to arrive. Kentucky River Foothills is providing shuttle service from hotels to the conference and to all events during the conference. There is no extra fee for this service, which is included in the registration fee.

In order to set up your shuttle pick up, please let us know when you plan to arrive and depart. Shuttles will be provided by Kentucky River Foothills and will be leaving Bluegrass Airport in Lexington, KY approximately every two (2) hours. 

If you need to contact Kentucky River Foothills between the hours of 8:30am and 4:30pm Monday through Friday, please call 859-624-3236.

In order to provide the shuttle schedule online, we need to have your flight information by March 10, 2019, at the latest. We will then pass the information to the shuttle company, who will provide us with a set of times that shuttles will arrive and leave the airport. We will then put that information on the website, so that you will know when you can expect them.

Fees and Payment Options:

The roundtrip fare is $20 paid to the driver directly at the airport.  This includes travel from Blue Grass Airport to the designated Richmond hotels, and return from either the designated Richmond hotels to the Blue Grass Aiport.  Payment should be in Cash or Check ONLY.  Checks must be from American (U.S.) banks.  Credit cards will not be accepted.  Make checks out to: Kentucky River Foothills.

Where to find the Shuttle:

The Blue Grass Airport is a small, regional airport.  All passengers are directed to the same small baggage claim area, which also has all the car rental offices.  Once you have picked up your baggage, there is an exit to the right of the car rental offices.  Upon exiting the building, look for a shuttle straight ahead of you or to the right.  The shuttle should say "Foothills Express." (If there are few people traveling, the "shuttle" may be a car designated as "Foothills Express".)

Shuttles will only be available on the dates listed.
