In addition to regular taxis, we have received the following
announcement about some special, more cost-oriented transportation
alternatives that are being made available from this company. I know
that Lorraine Rovig has found a second source of transportation too, but
I don't have these details. Here is what I have. It looks pretty good.
The cab cost, without supplementation, is about $50 each way, not bad if
sharing, but expensive if you are alone. This alternative is about $50
round-trip. Here is what I have:

RE: Ground transportation service from the airport (DTW) to the Detroit
Marriott and Courtyard Marriott hotels at the Renaissance Center and

We are pleased to share information on a service being made available to
NFB members through Enjoi Transportation, prior to, during, and after
our convention taking place in Detroit, from July 3rd- July 8th.

Enjoi Transportation will offer a range of transportation vehicles from
mini-vans to mini-buses, up to 46 passenger motor coaches. All vehicles
are air-conditioned.

Enjoi Transportation will provide round-trip ground transportation from
Detroit Metro Airport (McNamara and North terminals) to the Detroit
Marriot at the Renaissance Center to attendees for the round-trip
discounted rate of $45.00 per person.  Upon arrival at Detroit Metro
Airport, attendees will be met by greeters in the baggage claim sections
of both terminals who will assist arrivals to the registration table(s)
and then onto awaiting shuttles for transport of members and luggage to
the hotel(s).  Ground transportation service will be available on a
24-hour basis throughout the convention dates.  Those interested in this
service are encouraged to make reservations at least 48 hours before
arrival; however, ground transportation will also be available to
attendees upon arrival to Detroit Metro Airport.  (Single direction
service is also available at $22.50 per person)

Reservations can be made starting immediately via phone by using the
information stated below.  Credit card payments will be accepted.
Please note that members who make a reservation, then change their plans
and do not cancel their reservation within 48 hours of their scheduled
arrival will be charged a one-way trip fee, of $22.50.

Please consider this opportunity to save on the cost of transportation
while in Detroit.  There is no regular shuttle service from the airport
terminals to hotels as we have had in other cities.  Airport taxi and
sedan service is available, but charges are approximately $50 EACH WAY
per person.

If you are interested in obtaining more information or making a
reservation prior to your arrival in Detroit, please contact Enjoi
Transportation at one of the following numbers:  1(877) ENJOI-US,
1(877) 365-6487, (313) 758-1000, via fax at (313) 758-1001, or via email
at <mailto:glynn at enjoitrans.com>glynn at enjoitrans.com.

SPECIAL NOTE: Please be aware the neither the National Federation of the
Blind (NFB) nor the NFB of Michigan is responsible for this service in
any way.

Anybody have current information on transportation from the Detroit
airport to downtown?  I'm coming in late Thursday evening, and don't
really want to be standing around for long periods of time waiting for
some sort of nonexistent services.  I *know* Doug outlined the options
at the spring conference, but of course, I didn't take notes.
