TRAVEL

Classic Touch Limousine is offering WOW participants a 10% discount for service to/from the Indianapolis Airport and Bloomington. Indicate "Ostrom Workshop discount" when making reservations. The discounted one-way fare is $79.35 per person (roundtrip $158.70) and price includes gratuity.

Participants will need to make their own transportation arrangements. Indiana University is located in Bloomington, Indiana. Nestled in the wooded hills of southern Indiana, Bloomington is a one-hour drive from Indianapolis, the state's capital. With its central location in the heart of the Midwest, Bloomington is easy to get to by car, bus, or plane.

Walnut Street/College Ave. Exit on IN-37 is closed until August 2014. Instead, use the Indiana 45/46 exit (after exiting, proceed east on the Indiana 45/46 Bypass).]
