Has anyone been successful in confirming a shuttle from the airport to 7 Springs for a certain time?

No, they aren't deciding on any specific times yet, which is rather annoying for trying to schedule a flight not knowing when the shuttles will end up leaving...

Preliminary plans are for 3 per day at 10AM, 2 and 7PM. It's kind of a chicken and egg thing, they can't know what demand is til they see people make reservations.

I'm just surprised that with under 3 weeks to go they haven't had enough people call for shuttles yet to know when the shuttles are going to leave. Are there that many people who plan on flying in but who still haven't bought their plane tickets yet?

I will say, the people I talked to on the phone at 7 Spring were quite helpful. They also gave the impression that there will be more shuttles than just three a day for the opening weekend (which makes sense to me, given the high volume of people likely arriving on those days), and that probably most people will be able to be at the convention within 2-3 hours of their flight arriving.

So, they've figured out their Airport -> 7 Springs shuttles, but still haven't decided on when the return trips are leaving. Apparently I won't find out if there's one that can get me to the airport on time or not until I get there. That'll be interesting.

That's a little early. I imagine there will be an early shuttle or 3 on Sunday heading towards the airport.

Yeah I mean I knew when I got that flight that I might need to find another ride to the airport other than the shuttle; I just figured that they'd be able to determine departure times sooner than "not until the convention starts".

You'd have to call 814-352-7777 Ext. 5000. On Saturday 7/23 I think there is one leaving at 10:15am and one at 11:30am, but that's all I know.

You're flying this year Michael - and bypassing all that awesome roadside BBQ along the way when you drive ?

I've developed an allergy to driving halfway across the continent.

After that last post I called to confirm there was definitely a 10:15 saturday morning, and I wa told twice both that a) there was, and b) I was on it.

This morning - nothing. I call and they say there is no 10:15 shuttle, and that I'm on the 11:30. Had they told me this accurately the first time I wouldn't have used the shuttle at all.
