Getting to and From the AMTA Conference

AMTA Conference Airport Arrival Instructions
Sunday October 7 – Thursday October 11, 2012
AMTA has been working very diligently to find our conference participants the best possible deal for airport transportation. Our efforts have shown that the most cost effective way to get people to the Pheasant Run Resort is to institute a cab sharing procedure. A greeter with an AMTA sign from Midwest Transit will be on duty at most peak arrival times to help facilitate sharing cabs. Our goal is to keep your travel expenses as low as possible – with 3 people sharing a cab from O’Hare the fare would be between $30 - $35 each. Midway will be more expensive. Most cabs accept credit cards.
If you have any questions upon your arrival at the airport you can call our airport arrival line (630) 347-0859.
Arrivals into O’Hare and Midway Airports
O’Hare International Airport is made up of five (5) terminals, Terminal #1, #2, #3 and #5 situated in a "horse shoe shape". After you have claimed your luggage, please walk or take the inter-airport shuttle train to Terminal #2 and then proceed to the lower level baggage claim area. Once you have arrived at terminal #2 (in lower level baggage claim area) please walk to door 2C AND WAIT INSIDE THE TERMINAL, NOT OUTSIDE. (All the doors in terminal 2C are well marked, 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, etc.). At this point you can attempt to "meet up" with other guests from AMTA in order to share a cab to the hotel. Please be aware that guests are arriving over a 5-day period and sometimes it may be a while before someone else shows up.

Midway airport is made up just (1) terminal. After you have claimed your luggage, please walk to door 2 AND WAIT INSIDE THE TERMINAL, NOT OUTSIDE.
