If anyone wants to meet at the airport and find our way to Philly (I haven't looked at the options yet, but am down with whatever), post your flight arrival time and day here as well as your departure time and day. Let's help each other! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>

Also might look into Rapid Rover. It is a local airport shuttle service. And if you all meet up and call to arrange a ride for say 5 or 6, it is cheaper per person. I took it from NJ to the Philly airport recently for $25. Just a thought!!!!<br><a href="http://www.rapidrover.com/" target="_blank">http://www.rapidrover.com/</a>

SEPTA (local transit) runs an airport train line. $4.75-$7 depending on peak/off-peak and whether you buy the ticket on the train. Most Center City hotels are walking distance of Suburban Station.<br><br>
Many hotels run free shuttles.<br><br>
Cab fare is about $27 (flat fare) to a downtown hotel. Don't let the goof ya. Phila taxis are some of the worst around.

I can call Tropiano too, I think I still have a few connections there from my meeting planning days. I will see if they give us a group discount for a certain number of people. Please also check with your hotels to see if they have shuttles. A lot of the ones in center city will have them.

I get in 4:30 PM Friday; no issues there.<br><br>
Leaving is where the dilemma starts. I'm staying with <b>PTom</b> at least into the day of the race. My flight Monday morning leaves verrry early (about 6:15 or so.) The earliest train from where <b>PTom</b> lives gets to the airport at around 5:30 AM, which to me seems to be cutting it close, though I could be wrong (not sure how timely the train is there generally.)<br><br>
I was thinking of staying downtown that night to be closer to the airport, but <b>PTom</b> mentioned the cabs suck as well. And I don't want to wake up anyone earlier than need be either. Is anyone headed for the airport around that wee hour? If not, should I take my chances with the train? cab? Or perhaps should I rent a car for that lone day? Suggestions would be kindly accepted

Generally the early trains run pretty close to ontime. Also, like Lori mentioned, the limos (i.e. vans) are pretty reasonable.<br><br>
I've never used one, but these guys were the first google hit:<br><br><a href="http://www.davesbestlimos.com/" target="_blank">http://www.davesbestlimos.com/</a>
