Bus Transportation

huge-22-114734The Waters of Grace event team wishes to partner with you to make your transportation to Lakeview Methodist Conference Center (LMCC) as smooth as possible. Motor coach transportation  to Lakeview Methodist Conference Center (2.5 hour ride) has been arranged from the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Airport.

The cost for your round-trip transportation to and from Lake View Methodist Conference Center is $50. The first motor coach will depart sometime around 11:30 A.M. on Monday, January 30. Subsequent departures will occur as the bus fills up, with the last motor coach departing the DFW airport precisely at 3:30 p.m.


You will need to allow at least 60 minutes to deplane, travel to your arrival terminal baggage claim area, get your luggage, and use the airport shuttle busses to travel to Terminal ‘D’ (International Terminal).  DFW shuttle busses  have their terminal destinations on their marquis above the windshield. Please make your way to the luggage area of Terminal D near carousel 31. Once you arrive at Terminal D you will pick up your prepaid bus ticket.  When you register for the event, be sure to mark “bus transportation” and pay the $50 fee.

You must plan your flight to land before 2:30 p.m. at DFW to meet the 3:30 p.m. motor coach. Participants who miss the 3:30 motor coach will need to plan for their own transportation. Please schedule your arrival time earlier in the day in case your airline experiences a delay.
