  • Ground Transportation (updated info): The following link, which was specifically created for WILPF - https://www.supershuttle.com/default.aspx?GC=U47QG - should automatically generate the WILPF discount codewhen you reserve your shuttle transportation online.  Note:  The last five digits of the link are the actual code you will use.  On the website, where it asks for a discount code please type in U47QG.  If you need instead to telephone to reserve your shuttle, please tell them you are with WILPF in order to receive the discount. When asked where you need to go from the Raleigh-Durham airport (RDU), tell them you are going to the Hardin Dormitory on Manning Drive at Ridge Road on the UNC campus in Chapel Hill.

    If, when you arrive at the airport, you need to call them, the phone number for the BLUE VAN (SuperShuttle) is 800-258-3826.

    If you need any assistance with Ground Transportation, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email (tmhartman@nc.rr.com) or by phone (919-619-6546).  Finally, please be sure to thank the Super Shuttle folks because they, particularly their local Sales Manager, Melanie Vollrath, have been very accommodating and enthusiastic about WILPF.
