Please note that you will be responsible for your own transportation to and from the conference venue. We encourage participants to walk, bike, take the bus or carpool with colleagues. Below are options for 'going green'! 

  • Buses 5, 10, and 46 can take folks from campus to close to Sweetwater. These buses should be free for anyone with a UF ID! Visit the RTS website for public transportation from an alternate location.
  • Bike

    Sweetwater Inn provides bicycle racks for those who wish to commute by bicycle (hotel guests can rent bikes as well).

  • RideAmigos Carpool Service - Sign up to carpool!

    UF has partnered with RideAmigos to provide a free, interactive service that helps members of the UF community plan better commutes, find carpool partners, and discover all the transit options available along the way.

    For help on using the UF RideAmigos website and app, visit the RideAmigos Academy for tutorials and tips.
