Dan et al,

It is impossible for wheelchair users or people with mobility impairments
to use the light rail + hotel shuttle or other public transportation. It
would be lovely if the conference venue were close and accessible to the
light rail. The hotel does not have any accessible vans for their
complimentary shuttle service. While this option works for many, it is not
accessible for all.
