Important Information about Shuttles

You can register for Athletics Reunion (and even pay for a shuttle) without providing your flight information, if you have not yet confirmed your plans. Once you purchase your plane tickets, you must notify our office and register for the appropriate shuttles.  

Providing your travel information

If you are unable to provide travel information at the time of your registration, you will be sent an online form prior to Athletics Reunion. You will use this form to update your travel information and register for a specific shuttle. 


The deadline to register for a shuttle is August 12. Any reservations made after that date will be by availability only (for example, if seats become available because someone cancels). A late fee will be assessed. 


You will be contacted by email approximately one week prior to Athletics Reunion to confirm shuttle times and information.
