Getting to Orlando
Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) is 30 minutes away. It mainly serves charters and small carriers, but has good rates for the cities it serves.
Tampa (TPA) is two hours by car. Melbourne (MLB) is 90 minutes.
The adventurous may try the DC Auto Train. It arrives in Sanford, about 30 minutes from campus. Note that unloading can take 30-90 minutes and punctuality varies, so we recommend arriving Tuesday.
Getting to UCF
There is no good public transportation between the airport and the UCF area. Some of the hotels have shuttles to UCF, but not to the airport.
For ground transportation from the airport, you can find:
- A large variety of rental car agencies (driving time to UCF around 30 minutes),
- Taxis (cost to UCF about $50).
You will see a lot of shuttle services offered at the airport. Unfortunately, most of these offer services only to the Kissimmee/I-Drive/Theme parks areas. For a shuttle service to UCF, contact:
Premier Royal Transportation
10614 Cypress Trail Dr.
Orlando, FL 32825
(407) 208-0357 fax
They offer a shuttle service to and from the Orlando airport for $50 (please check with the service provider directly).
The University of Central Florida is located on the east side of Orlando, just south of Oviedo. See the driving directions to reach the main campus.
Drive to the Visitor Information Center, tell them you are with the conference, and show them your ID. They will have a list of conference attendees. Get a garage B pass from them. Also get a campus map showing Garage B and Live Oak. Park in Garage B and then walk to Live Oak. Live Oak is handicap accessible.
Here are UCF Campus Maps with Garage B and Live Oak.
