Of course Greyhound hits Reno from many directions, but
the chumps seem to have discontinued their "Lucky Streak" special...
unless you wanna go to Vegas. And why would ya?
The airport is just a $8 cab ride from the venue, and
many hotels (including the Sands) offer free shuttles every
30 minutes or so. Southwest and ExpressJet are a couple of
so-called "low cost" carriers that land in Reno (though nothin' is
cheap anymore). You should also try a search on
sidestep.com and skyscanner.net!
Just four hours from San Francisco!
(I can do it in three & a quarter)

If you're staying at the Nugget you won't need to move too far -- the venue's right across the street! If you want to explore: Reno's mostly flat and very bikeable, with plenty of new bike lanes and a real nice river path. Our local bus service has a terminal right next to the Nugget, check it here: rtcwashoe.com. Buses leave for downtown Reno every 10-15 minutes. For a taxi call 333-3333
