London, Ontario (population ~475,000) is located in Southwestern Ontario, a peninsula of land delineated by Lakes Ontario, Erie and Huron. London is approximately mid-way between Detroit (USA) and Toronto, about two hours' drive from each.
Arriving by Air
London International Airport (Airport code: YXU) is served by regular flights to and from Toronto, ON and Ottawa, ON (Air Canada), Calgary, AB and Winnipeg, MB (WestJet) and Chicago, IL (USA; United). A Taxi to the University from the airport takes approximately 20 minutes and costs ~$20.
Sometimes it can be more convenient or cheaper to fly to Toronto, ON or Detroit, MI (USA). From there, it is possible to get a shuttle to London. The two main shuttle companies are Robert Q and the Aboutown Airbus.
Arriving by Train
Unfortunately, there is no easy rail link from Toronto Pearson International Airport to London, ON. However, if you are spending some time in Toronto, Ottawa or Kingston (or the nearby cities of Guelph or Windsor) before or after the meeting, the Via Rail train service is an efficient and effective way to get to London.
Free parking is available for delegates in the Medway parking lot (University Dr, behind Elgin Hall).
All delegates will be provided with a
free bus pass to facilitate their movement around London.
