For those traveling directly to Milwaukee:

For information on Mitchell International Airport, click here, and for ground transportation from the Airport, click here.  Expect a taxi ride from the Airport to either the University or the Hotel to cost ca. $ 25-30.

For those traveling to Chicago First:

If you fly into Chicago's O'Hare Airport, the most convenient way to get to Milwaukee is to take the shuttle bus "Coach USA" that rides hourly from early morning to late night.  The ride takes 90 minutes.  It is advised that you buy tickets ahead (online).  From the drop-off location downtown (by the Amtrak Train Station), it is best to take a taxi cab to the hotel or university (ca. $ 10).
