SEA Eugene 2019 ~ Travel and Hospitality Information:
The Eugene airport, Mahlon Sweet Field, uses the code EUG and is served by United, American, Delta, Alaska, and Allegiant Airlines from cities shown on the map below.
For guests staying at the Eugene Hilton, a free shuttle bus is available to and from the airport. For those staying elsewhere, taxi service costs $20 -25 to central Eugene. Uber does not currently operate in Eugene, but may be available by 2019.
Alternatively, one can fly to Portland, PDX, and reach Eugene by Amtrak train or bus. Least expensive is the Bolt bus service, which departs downtown Portland for Eugene twice a day for $15 one way.
Be aware that if you are flying back to the Eastern from the Pacific Time Zone and wish to reach your destination by late afternoon it requires leaving early on Sunday or Monday morning. There are several departing flights to Portland, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles between 5 and 8 am.
Conference sessions on Friday and Saturday will be held at the Hilton Eugene. On Thursday, February 28th we will be meeting at the Erb Memorial Union on the UO Campus. To reach campus is a half-hour walk over 1.4 miles, or a free bus ride on Eugene’s state of the art EMX bus service (route shown below). The Hilton shuttle will also transport SEA participants in the morning and evening.
