SCA 2011 Travel and Maps
Travel times between the airport, UBC, and downtown Vancouver are all approximately 30 minutes.
|Airport to UBC|| The address of the UBC accomodations is: 5961 Student Union Boulevard
Taxi: approx $35
Transit: $3.75 two-zone fare + $5.00 Airport Add Fare. Take the Canada Line Skytrain (first train at 5:10am, last train at 12:57am); transfer onto a westbound/UBC bus at City Hall Station (recommend #99-B line). This will drop you off at the UBC bus loop, very nearby the accomodations.
|UBC to Downtown|| Taxi: approx $30
Transit: $2.50 one-zone fare, approx 35 min. Buses #4 and #17 go directly to downtown and depart from the small bus loop located right next to the War Memorial Gym on the University Boulevard. Alternatively, take #99-B or #84 from the UBC main bus loop and transfer at the first sky train stop, taking the sky train direction Waterfront.
|Downtown to Airport|| Taxi: approx $35
Transit: $3.75 two-zone fare, approx 30 min on the Canada Line sky train. Board at either the Waterfront station (Granville & Hastings) or Vancouver City Centre (Granville & Georgia). You do *not* want the Expo/Millenium sky train.
The UBC Village is a great place to find lunch on Sunday before heading off to SIGGRAPH.
