Dear ISEP,PSA, & SOP members,

Many questions have come up about how to get to Flagstaff  from 
Phoenix, Arizona.

Here are some suggestions:

BY AIR: Southwest Airlines have several flights a day.  Contact your 
travel agent for details and prices.

BY BUS:  There is a very nice, comfortable bus service,"Nava-Hopi Bus
Lines" (Phone 520-774-5003) that runs from Terminal 2 at Phoenix,
SkyHarbor Airport directly uphill to Flagstaff.  Cost is $22. one way
and brings you to downtown Flagstaff in 2.5 hrs.  Buses run 3 times
each day to Flag (11:30am, 5:30pm, 7:15pm).   The bus departs from the
East end of Terminal 2, ground level ("Meet&Greet Area").  

If you arrive at Terminal 3: Just a 3 min. walk West to Terminal 2, 

If Terminal 4: Green shuttle buses (at ground level baggage claim area
at each Terminal) will run you to Terminal 2.  Bus travels from
Terminal 4 > Terminal 3 > Parking Area > Terminal 2, and back.

We will arrange for shuttle buses to meet arriving airport buses and
take you to your hotel or dorm.

BY CAR:  From Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.  Take Rt 10 West ~2miles to
Rt 17 North.  Stay on Rt 17 North for 140 miles, straight up hill to
Flagstaff (~2.5 hrs, at the speed limit!).  Rt 17 passes under Rt 40
in Flagstaff. 1/2 mile beyond Rt 40, Rt 17 ends at a traffic light and
becomes Milton Rd. At this first traffic light, turn Left.  All three
hotels are within site. 

If, however, you remain on Milton Rd and at second traffic light turn
Right, you're on the NAU campus.

BY HUMMER: Head directly North from Airport.  STOP at the base of the
first 12,000 ft. (3600 M) mountain.
