Directions to the campus and hotels:

From the airport, by taxi. The ride costs about $25.

From the airport, by bus. From the airport, take bus 97 to the "Laurier" bus stop. From there it is a short walk to any of the conference hotels (see the area map above). To reach the Ramada Hotel, note that you have to cross the Canal - you should follow Laurier Ave across the bridge to Elgin, then turn left on Elgin and left again on Cooper.

The bus ride takes about 20 minutes. Buses run every 15 minutes during daytime. The fare is $2.50, and you should have exact change. You can find the #97 bus schedules here (careful if arriving on the weekend: click on "Saturday" or "Sunday" for weekend schedules). For your orientation, you can also consult the transitway map on the right.

From the train station, by bus. The instructions are the same as "from the airport", except that you take bus 95 from the train station to the "Laurier" bus stop. The ride takes only about 10 minutes. You can find the #95 bus schedules here.

By car. From highway 417 (Queensway), take exit 118 marked "Nicholas St". This will put you on the above area map. Parking in Ottawa can be difficult, so if your hotel does not offer parking, you might want to consider using a parking garage. The dormitories offer parking to guests at an additional charge.
