2020 Texas Housing Conference Update

With the ongoing concerns about COVID-19 (the Coronavirus), we want you to know that the safety and health of 2020 Texas Housing Conference participants is our top priority. The TAAHP Board of Directors no longer believes an in-person conference in July is prudent. However, because many of you have reached out to support TAAHP's effort to facilitate the Texas Housing Conference in any and all ways possible, we have been working behind the scenes to reimagine the Conference into a program that brings the best of both worlds together into one. This year we are bringing you the Texas Housing Conference PLUS!  Two formats, one price - two conferences for the price of one! Join us virtually July 20-22nd for an information packed set of educational webinars, virtual booth exhibits and virtual networking opportunities you won't want to miss! Then, October 5 & 6 we will bring the second component with a live event at The Fairmont in Austin, Texas. With double the event space, prudent social distancing and other recommended safety measures can easily be observed so that we can gather safely and navigate doing business within our "new normal".  Our partners at The Fairmont have put in place an extremely high level of safety protocols to maximize the safety of its guests. Coupled with additional health safety measures planned by TAAHP event planners and staff, we are excited to be planning what is sure to be a fun, informative, prosperous and safe event for all who attend.

Ground Transportation Options

Public Transportation

Capital Metro’s 100-AirportFlyer bus runs to and from the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) every 30 minutes. Direct access to the Downtown area is $1.25. The route stops at the corner of Riverside and Town Creek Drive on the Southeast side, at the cross section of Fourth and Trinity streets Downtown, and on 23rd Street between Robert Dedman Drive and San Jacinto Boulevard near the University of Texas campus.

Car Share

car2go: Access one of these blue-and-white cars from dozens of Downtown locations. Members unlock the car with the car2go app, turn the key and drive for less than 50 cents per minute. No need to return it to where you found it or to pay at meters – that’s included already. It could take 1-2 business days for your membership to be processed before you can begin reserving cars, so plan ahead.

Members can use ZipCar‘s app or website to reserve a car for as little as an hour or for up to a week. Rates start at $9.75 per hour or $74 per day depending on your membership plan. Pick up your ZipCar at its designated Downtown parking spot and return it there when you’re done. There is no wait period before new users can begin reserving cars.

Taxis

Hailing a cab from the airport’s transportation line on the lower level just outside baggage claim is probably a better option.
