Complimentary Airport Shuttles - City of Eugene Airport
The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) will provide round-trip transportation from the Eugene Airport to the major athlete hotel areas from June 24 through July 8, 2008.
Shuttles will operate from 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 midnight. Athletes staying at hotels other than those identified as athlete hotels will be responsible for their own airport transportation. Shuttles will load from the baggage claim area.
Complimentary Airport Shuttles - Portland International Airport
The LOC will operate a complimentary shuttle from the Portland Airport on a reservation-only basis. Athletes who have entered the Olympic Trials and show as "qualified" on USATF's Status of Entries page are eligible to reserve a seat on the Portland to Eugene Shuttle for themselves and the individuals for whom they have requested a credential or guest pass during the entry process. Reservations must be made by June 20.
Athletes who meet this criteria and have not received the reservation form should contact email@example.com to request the form. Forms from non-qualified athletes will be discarded and no follow-up notice will be sent.
UPDATE: As a courtesy to athletes with the "B" standard who are notified after declarations close that they can compete in the Olympic Trials, the LOC will accept requests to reserve space for the Portland-to-Eugene shuttle after the June 20 deadline. Athletes in this category must fax the Portland Shuttle Reservation form as soon as they are notified of their acceptance and have booked travel. The form will be accepted up to 24 hours prior to the athlete's arrival, and space will be reserved on the shuttle bus, if available. The form must be faxed not less than 24 hours prior to the athlete's arrival to 541-687-1016 or sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Parking at Hayward Field
Parking is very limited around Hayward Field. The LOC will provide shuttles from the Hilton and other major hotel areas for athletes and credentialed athlete support personnel. There is no designated parking for participants around Hayward Field, so it is strongly recommended that the complimentary shuttle be used.
