Airport Connections

A taxi is the most convenient way to travel from the airport to the University of Calgary or a nearby hotel. The fare should be approximately $40 to $45, plus gratuity and taxes. Sedan services, which bill based on zones rather than a meter, are available at a similar cost. Uber also serves Calgary airport.

The most economical way to travel from the airport to the University of Calgary is via Calgary Transit. Information about routes that depart from Calgary airport can be found on the Calgary Transit website.


Hotel Alma is located on the University of Calgary campus approximately 10 minutes walk from the conference location. Using this link should provide a discount compared to the publicly available rates. Several alternative hotels are available at Motel Village, including a Holiday Inn Express and the Best Western Village Park Inn which are commonly used by guests of the university. Motel Village is one light rail stop south of the university campus.
