Detailed information about all of theses opportunities may be found on the Navigation tabs. But, before continuing, here’s two definitions:
Timed Tours (Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) – Everyone boards the bus on 10th Street at the Convention Center at the same time and the group stays together during the entire tour. At each stop a certain amount of time is allowed to visit the exhibition(s). At the end of each visit everyone re-boards the bus and travels to the next stop where the scenario is repeated. The tour cost on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday includes a box lunch to enjoy while traveling. Tour participants select a box lunch from four choices during the registration process.
Continuous Gallery Shuttle Routes (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) – Buses operate continuously (much like a city bus system) with departures every 25 to 30 minutes from 10th Street at the Convention Center. Board the bus at the Convention Center at your leisure. Each rider receives a wristband which is the “ticket” to re-board the bus at any stop along the route. At any of the stops on the shuttle route riders may HOP-OFF and visit the exhibition(s) knowing that every 25-30 minutes a bus will be available at the shuttle stop to HOP-ON and ride to the next exhibition the rider wants to visit or return to the Convention Center. The shuttle ticket allows the rider to HOP-OFF and HOP-ON at any or all stops on the shuttle route. NOTE: A separate shuttle ticket is needed for each shuttle route.
The following pages list the Timed Tours and Continuous Gallery Shuttle Routes offered on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and includes the tour or shuttle stop number, the venue(s) at the stop and the exhibition(s) at each venue.

The ticket cost for each Timed Tour and Continuous Gallery Shuttle Route is included on each page. Two prices are listed for each Timed Tour and Continuous Shuttle Route–one price when tickets are purchased prior to the Conference and a higher price when tickets are purchased at the Conference.

The First and Second Rounds of the NCAA Basketball Tournament are in Pittsburgh at the same time as NCECA. Eight colleges and universities will be competing with fans arriving Wednesday for the four Thursday games and fans arriving Thursday for the four Friday games. High Demand for Rides coupled with only a Steady Supply of Vehicles = Higher Prices
