Getting to the Self Defense Workshop
Getting to Bowling Green:
If you’re flying in to join us, you will probably want to fly into either Toledo or Detroit Metro Airport. The Toledo airport is 20 minutes away from Bowling Green, but compared with Detroit, the fares are often higher and it is less likely that you’ll find a direct flight from your local airport. Getting to Bowling Green from the Detroit airport, however, requires a bit longer drive (just under an hour and a half).
A shuttle service is available from both airports. The shuttle fares are as follows:
Detroit Metro Airport: $102 one-way between 6 am and 11 pm, with a surcharge of $40 outside those hours
Toledo Airport: $52 one-way between 6 am and 11 pm, with a surcharge of $35 outside those hours
If you are arriving close to the same time as another workshop attendee, it is possible to share a shuttle for a reduced fare:
Detroit Metro Airport Co-Share: $60 each (2-4 persons)
Toledo Airport Co-Share: $35 each (2-4 persons)
