UBER & Taxis are available at the Charleston airport, but can be a little difficult to acquire. Charleston is a small city market and UBER is hardly developed like larger cities and taxis are limited. Wild Dunes is about 30 Minutes from the Airport/Downtown so UBER & Taxis will normally not be available there unless called in advance.

Coastal Limo will track flights and have appropriate sized vehicles and professional drivers who are familiar with the area waiting for you. 

Here is the link for you to book your airport transportation with Coastal Limo, the exclusive transportation choice for AAWP Scientific Conference attendees.
