    When you call to make your reservation, state that you are with the MTSU Women's & Gender Studies Conference and request the conference rate at the time you make your reservation. When you make your reservation you also must give the person who takes your reservation the name of your airline, your flight number, and a cell phone number. Conference rates are $90.00 round trip and $50.00 one way.
    If for some reason a flight is cancelled or other complications occur, Key will attempt to alert you via your cell phone. Key does check arrival times, but if your airline informs you that your flight has been delayed, please phone Key with your revised estimated time of arrival.
    Key Transport picks up passengers at the airport Information Desk on the baggage level and takes them to the hotel or directly to the conference, as preferred.
