Last night I visited the KC Area Transportation Authority's website,
http://www.kcata.org/ , and found it to be quite helpful. I'll be staying
at the Fairfield Inn/Union Hill which is about a mile from the conference
hotels--close enough to walk if the weather's OK, but NCECA has given no
assurances about the weather. In a message to the NCECA planning committee,
I suggested they include public transportation info to and from the
"outlying" hotels to the conference site on the NCECA website.
