Transportation to the Fulbright Afghanistan Orientation

IMI has scheduled and prepaid for round-trip transportation from the airport to the hotel with Super Shuttle. There are Super Shuttle stations throughout the airport. You will receive an email with a confirmation and shuttle reservation details by Friday, October 10. On Wednesday, October 15, if you need assistance with your transportation, a workshop assistant, holding an "American University" sign, will be stationed at the Super Shuttle station at Terminal C at Reagan National Airport from 9:00am to 2:30pm. If you do not need any assistance, please proceed directly to the Super Shuttle station and give your reservation code to the attendant. 

Here is the name and cell phone numbers for our workshop assistant:

You can take a taxi to the hotel (average cost $15 each way), but we recommend taking the Metro, public transportation (average cost $3.15 each way though price may vary depending on time of travel). If you have any questions upon arrival, feel free to call me on my cell phone.
