I just wanted to make folks aware of possible money-saving options for travel to Madison. Chicago is about three hours away, and obviously has many more flight options, including Southwest Airlines service to Chicago Midway Airport.

Van Galder Bus offers service almost every hour from O'Hare to Madison, and less frequent service from Midway and downtown Chicago. Find schedule and fare info here.

In addition, I will be driving from Chicago to Madison on Tuesday afternoon, returning Sunday evening after WhereCamp, and am happy to have passengers one or both ways.

For those coming from the West, Frontier service to Milwaukee may also be worth checking. The Badger Bus connection is about 2.5 hours.

A little late for this, but for those waiting until the very last minute....Southwest also serves Milwaukee as well as Airtran. Airfares to MKE have been some of the lowest in the country. Badger Bus runs every 90 minutes between Milwaukee and Madison, 11 times per day. Good luck and welcome to Madison!!
