Getting from the airport to the OU campus requires a 35-40 minute car ride. If you need taxi service, the recommended company is Airport Express. Their flat rate from the OKC airport to the OU campus is $38 for the first person plus $3 for each additional person. They can take up to five people at once, so we recommend finding other meeting attendees to share the cost. To hook up with fellow travelers, you can try the ride-share thread on the Ornithology Exchange website.

Here’s a link to a special $1 coupon from Airport Express. They would prefer that you print this coupon and show it to the driver when you board the vehicle. However, if you can’t print it, they can make do with a smartphone or tablet image.


If you want to rent a car and drive to campus, we suggest you travel via I-35 as explained here.
