A number of potential 2012 AGM attendees have been concerned about transportation to the hotel from Pearson Airport. We have contacted a minibus company that is licensed to operate from Pearson who will pick people up from the airport and drop them at the hotel on the Friday at set times. When you book your flight to Pearson, please let us know if you would be interested in the airbus and we’ll take it from there.
The cost is going to be about $30 per person (including tax and tip). This is about $20 cheaper than taking a cab from the airport.
We suggest that you do not rent a car if you are coming just for the AGM as the schedule will be filled with things to do.
- Nearly every Toronto-area taxi company accepts the major credit cards (VISA and MasterCard). However, check with the taxi driver that she/he will take the credit card you have.
- Most companies also accept American bills. Again check before if they accept American dollars.
- A number of taxi companies offer a senior rate. Ask before if the taxi does offer a seniors’ discount and be prepared to show proof.
- The taxi will cost approximately $50 to $55 from the airport to the hotel, including taxes. Some, such as Airport Taxi, charge $47 to the hotel, but you must prebook your trip.
We will have a taxi sign-up sheet at the AGM registration so you can coordinate a ride back to the airport with someone else to split the costs.
Please note you will need a passport to cross the Canada-US border.
