Trains, Planes, and Shuttles

ABA has arranged for travel discounts to help make your trip more affordable: (And don't forget to check with colleagues about car pooling from the airport! The Super Shuttle can take a bit of time to reach the Sheraton; sharing a cab from the airport can be just as economical and more efficient.)

Amtrak offers a 10% discount off the best available rail fare to Denver between January 20, 2016 – January 29, 2016. To book your reservation, call Amtrak at 1 (800) 872-7245 or contact your local travel agent.

Convention fares cannot be booked via the Internet. Refer to Convention Fare Code X47Y-933 when making your reservation. This offer is not valid on the Auto Train and Acela Service. Fare is valid on Amtrak Regional for all departures seven days a week, except for holiday blackouts. Offer valid on Sleepers, Business Class, or First Class seats with payment of the full applicable accommodation charges.
