Airport shuttle service to CHSR

For airport shuttle service, keep in mind that CHSR is located 60 miles from the airport in Fairbanks and the trip takes more than an hour. Do not count on being able to call CHSR when you arrive, and expect a shuttle to pick you up in a few minutes. The trips need to be coordinated by CHSR as to number of people, size of vehicle, available drivers etc. CHSR is providing this shuttle service free of charge to us (regular cost is $65 to $99 one-way).

If you do need shuttle service, please provide your arrival information (flight number, arrival time, number of people) when you make your room reservation with CHSR (if you have the information at that time). You may request to be picked up at a different Fairbanks location than the airport (for instance Pike’s Waterfront Lodge). Also, indicate on the meeting registration form that you need shuttle service.

Since we do not want anybody to be stranded in Fairbanks, please also email (even if you did inform the front desk and/or checked the registration form) your shuttle request with date and time of arrival to Diane (diane@chenahotsprings) and to Meriam (
