"Molly the Trolley" offers trolley routes throughout downtown Fort Worth and picks up directly in front of the ​Sheraton Hotel and the Omni Hotel, as well as most other downtown hotels.

Neither the ​Omni Hotel nor the Sheraton Hotel offer a complimentary shuttle from the airport, but ground transportation options, such as taxi, ​shuttle service, shared ride (Uber, Lyft, etc.) and rental cars, are available.

Free parking for conference attendees is available in the Law School parking lots. For parking permission, please contact Ms. Deborah Barnett, Senior Administrative Coordinator of Events, at dbarnett@law.tamu.edu.
