Orlando does not offer convenient public transportation options. You will need transportation to and from airport, conference location, restaurants, and attractions.

While you can take a taxi ($52-$68), shuttle van ($22-$37 per person), or Uber ($76-$97) from the Orlando International Airport to the conference hotel, ASGA recommends that you get a rental car for additional sightseeing, shopping, and restaurant options in Orlando.

The conference hotel offers a free shuttle that stops at all four Disney parks, as well as Universal Studios (Contact the hotel for the shuttle schedule).

Uber or Lyft may be less expensive options.
