Plan your ground travel to Sanibel
Plan on travel time of 45-60 minutes from the airport. There are no direct transit solutions from the airport, but good options include:
1.) Car rental - Most national, state, and regional rental car companies operate out of RSW with desks a short walk from the main terminal. The Sanibel causeway has a $6 toll for island-bound traffic.
2.) Taxi - MBA (http://www.mbaairport.com/) is the sole taxi provider for RSW. The fixed rate for one-way taxi service to the Sundial is ~$60 for 1-3 passengers. (We're in zone 6 on the fare chart: http://www.flylcpa.com/taxirates/)
3.) Shuttle - There are many small shuttle service operators (http://www.flylcpa.com/othertrans/) that include Sanibel in their service area. Many Group participants have been particularly pleased with Select Transportation over the years (http://flselecttrans.com/).
The conference organizers will help coordinate ride sharing closer to the conference for those interested.
