RootsTech Group on RideBuzz – Ride Sharing

ridebuzz rootstech 2012

For those of you attending RootsTech in Salt Lake City, February 2-4, 2012 or if you are arriving earlier for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy or the Association of Professional Genealogists Professional Management Conference: many have asked about sharing cabs from the Salt Lake City Airport or other ride sharing options.

I’ve successfully used RideBuzz in the past, specifically for the FGS 2011 conference in Springfield, Illinois.  So I’ve created a new group just for the RootsTech event next month – you can access it here ( and post a ride request, answer a ride request or other information.

I am staying at the Radisson Downtown Salt Lake City and they do not provide a complimentary shuttle from the airport.  Please keep this in mind if you are also staying at the Radisson.  Your options are taking a taxi (about $18) or using one of the shuttle van services at the Salt Lake City Airport.

Please take advantage of this service from RideBuzz and please spread the word via social media and on mailing lists, etc.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.

One thought on “RootsTech Group on RideBuzz – Ride Sharing

  1. Thomas, what a great idea! I can also recommend Express Shuttle as the service we recommend to SLIG participants. It costs $8.00 per person from the airport to the Radisson (not sure on the other hotels). They run approximately every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day from the airport. Airport pickup is just outside the doors by baggage claim. For travel to the airport, a departure must be scheduled with Express Shuttle; they do not pick up automatically from the hotel. Departures should be scheduled the evening before, and the Radisson can aid you in arranging for shuttle service to the airport. The average travel time to and from the airport is twenty minutes.

    So excited to welcome the genealogy community to Salt Lake in a few weeks!
