Ottawa, ON


Vancouver’s downtown is fairly small and much of it can be accessed on foot.

The two conference venues SFU Harbour Centre and the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts can both be accessed by taking the Canada Line or Expo Line of Skytrain to the nearby Waterfront Station. The Canada Line also runs directly from Vancouver Airport (YVR) to downtown. 

Several buses run to SFU Harbour Centre and to Waterfront Station.

Both buses and Skytrain can be paid for through Compass Cards or contactless cards. Compass Cards can be purchased at Skytrain stations and at some London Drugs stores. For more information on public transit, visit here.

Uber is not available in Vancouver, although there are several taxi companies. Taxi drivers in Vancouver are required by law to accept payment in cash or by credit card, according to your preference. 
Short term bicycle rentals are available, for example through VanCity Bike Rentals.
