Transportation | parking

Shuttles will run between the hotels, the conference site, and downtown Clemson during Thursday afternoon and all day on Friday of the conference.

Clemson Area Transit runs a free bus service in the area. The Clemson Red Route is the most comprehensive public transportation option.

Clemson is also served by Yellow Cab (864-882-3454), Uber, and Lyft.

Clemson is a walking friendly campus. Downtown is three-quarters of a mile from the conference site, the Holiday Inn and Marriott are just about a  mile and a half from the conference site each.

We suggest that you plan to park at your hotel on Thursday and Friday of the conference and use the shuttles to get back and forth to events and restaurants at the beginning and end of the day. Parking campus will be very limited on these days. Shuttles will not run on Saturday so driving to campus is then recommended. One-day parking passes can be purchased online.
