TRAVEL AND LODGING:
Shuttle Bus Service from Hotels to Conference: For the bus schedule coming soon. Shuttles will pick up and drop off at the designated hotels listed below.
Directions: Region 4 is located near Highway 290 at 7145 West Tidwell, Houston, TX 77092. The McKinney Conference Center is best accessed via Northwest Drive off of West Tidwell.
Please note there is currently significant construction along the Highway 290 corridor and specifically the exits to Region 4 in both the inbound (east) and outbound (west) directions. It is advisable to plan extra time and/or alternate routes for commuting to and from Region 4. http://traffic.houstontranstar.org/us290/
Parking: There is plenty of parking at Region 4. Park in the Red (south), or Green (east) lots as these are the closest to the McKinney Conference Center. If those lots are full, the Blue (west) lot is also available. The Gold (north) lot facing West Tidwell accesses the Region 4 business offices and not the Conference Center. Since Houston often has afternoon showers this time of year, you may want to pack an umbrella. There will be police officers in the afternoon to direct exit traffic.
