NPE2024 provides FREE shuttle bus service between NPE2024 hotels and OCCC’s South and West Buildings. Your NPE2024 badge entitles you to this unlimited free shuttle bus service. Please check the NPE2024 shuttle bus information sign located in your hotel lobby for the shuttle boarding location for your hotel.

The shuttle bus service does not stop at every hotel. Your hotel may be on a route, but your hotel’s boarding location may be at a neighboring hotel or a centralized location. All NPE2024 hotels with shuttle service will have a lobby sign noting the pick-up and drop-off locations for their hotel.

Transportation/shuttle bus signs within OCCC will direct you to pick-up locations for your hotel.
