Arrive Santa Barbara, Sunday, 28 July
Depart Santa Barbara, Saturday, 3 August
There is no UCSB shuttle from the SB airport
to the campus housing (Santa Ynez Apartments).
Transportation recommendation -- from
Santa Barbara Airport to the Santa Ynez Apartments
(6650 El Colegio Road, Goleta, California 93117):
This is a very short ride from the airport to
the apartments, and we recommend the SuperRide
shuttle (683-9636)--no advance reservations necessary...very
convenient and less expensive than taxis (usually
large white van, big blue lettering on sides and
top "SuperRide"). There is usually a
shuttle waiting at the airport for deplaning passengers,
so you may not need to call for service. Check
first before calling them (there is a courtesy
phone in the baggage claim area). Re: fare,
SuperRide is usually much cheaper than the regular
taxi fee. Also, it's convenient and a less expensive
to schedule a round-trip with them. SuperRide
is a better deal! (If you can't go with SuperRide,
Blue Dolphin Taxi is good also.)
Unless you state otherwise on your Personal Data
Form, I assume that each of you will accept our
offer to stay in the UCSB-owned Santa Ynez Apartments,
near the campus and within walking distance. The
cost of the six night stay (Sunday-Friday) is
extremely reasonable at $266.00 per person. This
amount will be deducted from your $500 CSISS scholarship,
and a balance check in the amount of $234 will
be remitted to you either at the end of the workshop
or later this summer.
(Note: For non-U.S. citizens, the balance will
be processed for you via a Travel Expense Voucher
to be detailed later.)
