If you live in Wisconsin or Minnesota another travel option available to you is Badger Coaches. They have daily service from Minneapolis, La Crosse, Whitewater, and Milwaukee to Madison, and they drop off 200 feet from the YAPC::NA 2012 conference facilities! A round trip ticket from Minneapolis will set you back about $75. One of the cool features is that most of the Badger Coaches have power outlets in every seat. So if you cling to your laptop like I do, then you’ll be able to stay charged up and working the entire time.
