What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Driving: Las Positas College is located in Livermore, CA. It is just off Interstate 580, close to both other parts of the Bay Area and to the Central Valley. Note that traffic patterns in the Bay Area can vary substantially based on the time of day--Westbound on I-580 from the Central Valley to Livermore in the morning commute, and Eastbound on I-580 from Livermore to the Central Valley in the afternoon commute. Traveling from either airport to Livermore during the afternoon commute will likely encounter significant traffic.

Flying: The 2 nearest airports are the following:

Oakland International Airport (located about 26 miles from Las Positas College)
Note: It is possible to take BART to the Pleasanton/Dublin station, but you would still need to take Bus 30R to the Las Positas campus. See www.wheelsbus.com for more details

San Jose International Airport (located about 35 miles from Las Positas College).
There is no BART connection between San Jose Airport and Las Positas College. Note that driving from San Jose to Livermore on a weekday afternoon, via I-680, can be very congested.
