TRAVEL INFORMATION AND ALASKA AIRLINES DISCOUNTS
We are aware that getting to Juneau is expensive. This is the case, notably, because there are no roads in or out, so one must arrive via air or water. Despite the fact that Alaska Airlines is the only major commercial airline serving Juneau, flying remains the cheapest way to get here. We have negotiated a 7% discount on Alaska Airlines tickets for conference attendees. (enter Discount Code: ECCMB2577 prior to checkout if you book online)
The Alaska Airlines Visa card is also an excellent way to save money. Successful applicants for this card get 25,000 frequent flyer miles--enough, in some cases, to get you to Juneau outright. The card also comes with a "companion fare," which enables you to travel with a friend and get a second ticket for $99 instead of the full fare.
The ferry system, known as the Alaska Marine Highway, is a relaxing and fun way to get to Juneau as well. While the 3 day trip from Bellingham, WA is cheaper than a commercial cruise, airfare is generally cheaper than a ferry ticket.
Around town: Capital Transit is a popular mode of transportation for locals and visitors. There are also bus tour operators, taxis and limo services.
Rental cars: most rental agencies are located at the Juneau airport.
Bicycle: there are plenty of bike trails, and there are bikes available for rent through Cycle Alaska.
More details will be posted later, as questions/suggestions arise.
