Asheville had a very extensive bus system that will get you everywhere you need to go during the annual meeting. Transit is an inexpensive way to get around Asheville and the surrounding area. Public transportation also helps cut down on global pollutants. Bus riders can board by paying cash fare or by using pre-paid tickets or passes. Please remember, all cash fares must be exact change. Vehicle operators cannot make change. All fare boxes can accept $1 bills.
The Single Rides tool is used to find partners to share a ride for one time trips. You can plan a carpool to the annual meeting. You and your trip partners benefit by sharing the cost of gas or parking and reduce emissions.
