So, how do I get to Pearl Hacks?


Buses are the largest way we get girls to Pearl Hacks. This year we will be offering 4 interstate routes and 1 local route. Check the routes below to see if your school is a stop! If you are riding a bus to Pearl Hacks, please fill out this form.


If your school isn’t along a bus route, you can still be reimbursed for travel. Gas will be reimbursed for any car that has 3 or more hackers in it (these girls do need to register, check in, and participate in the demo fair, to ensure that they are actually attending Pearl Hacks). Please see the chart to check how much of your gas we will cover. Train tickets can also be reimbursed (although Pearl Hacks will verify that you are taking the cheapest train possible, even if it isn’t the most convenient). We will have girls who can transport you to and from the train station (Durham is the closest Amtrak station). Please fill out either the train form or the gas form if you need to apply for reimbursement. We have limited funds, which will be given on a first-come first-serve basis.


If your car or train ride will be more than 6 hours, you may be eligible for flight reimbursement. Flight reimbursement will be decided on a case-by-case basis, to ensure that our limited funds are bringing in the most diverse group possible. Please fill out this form to request a flight reimbursement. Please understand that we will be checking to ensure you are asking for the cheapest flight, not necessarily the most convenient/direct route. If approved, we will have someone pick you up and drop you off at the airport. Please do not purchase tickets until we have confirmed we will be reimbursing them.
