Latest SHEAR Meeting Updates

Dear SHEARites, if Philadelphia is broiling in the mid 90s by Fahrenheit's thermometer, it must be time for SHEAR!  Just a few days until we convene for our 39th annual meeting and I have a few transportation updates for you.

  • Time change:  the trolley vans to the Presidential Address and Awards Reception at the Independence Seaport Museum on Saturday night will begin to run at 5:30 pm.  Doors at the Museum will open at 6:00.
  • There is no pre-arranged transport to Thursday's Plenary.  Too many people arriving from too many different locations.  However, you have several options for getting across town to the Penn campus:
    • ​Uber and Lyft apps let you summon a taxi within minutes but you must download the app and set up an account in advance.
    • SEPTA buses and trolleys will take you to the law school and back to the DoubleTree (and many points elsewhere of course).  You will need exact fare ($2.50), or a token - which can be purchased in advance.  
      • Catch the bus at Walnut and Broad Streets;
      • get a trolley at the 13th Street station.  
        • The Septa stop is at 34th and Market, a block from the Law School; the trolley stops at 36th and Sansom, also just a block away.
    • Taxi share with others.

See you soon!  I send you traveling mercies and a reminder to bring your sunblock.

Warmest regards,

Robyn Lily Davis

SHEAR National Conference Coordinator
