Directions to/from the Airport
From the airport, students can either take a taxi (roughly $40 one way) or
the city bus. From the Airport, catch the #424 Airport Station bus (the
only public transit bus at the airport) and take it to Airport Station
(the end of the line). Catch the 98 Bline North and get off at 4th Ave and
transfer to the #4 bus going West. Get off at NW Marine Dr.
From downtown, walk to Burrard St and take the 98 Bline South to Airport
St. Transfer to the #424 to the airport. Budget one hour by bus to the
airport to account for the possibility of traffic.
Summer School Accommodations
Directions to Shabusen
From UBC, take the 99 Bline from the Main Bus Loop to Granville St. Walk
South on Granville and Shabusen is on the right near 14th Ave (2993
Granville St). From the hostel, take the #4 bus going East (away from
campus) to Granville St (the last stop before crossing the bridge to
downtown) and walk uphill to near 14th finding Shabusen on the right.
Directions to PICA
Take the bus as for Shabusen, but instead of walking South, walk under the
Granville St bridge. PICA is the building on the left before the entrance
to Granville Island.
Tuesday evening dinner
We recommend taking the #4 bus past the hostel to the main Kitsilano
centre. If you get off the bus at the Safeway, there are many restaurants
nearby (Chianti's, Indian Oven, a good Thai place, sushi...etc).
Alternatively, you can walk North (downhill) to the beach and eat
at any of several places located along Yew St (mostly pub food, Malone's
has a large patio facing the beach).
Accommodations for the Main Meeting
For the main meeting portion, students will
relocate downtown (get off the #4 bus at Davie St) to the Ramada Inn
The bottom arrow points to the Ramada Inn, while the top-left arrow points
to the Renaissance Vancouver Hotel, 1133 West Hastings St, where the Main
Meeting will be held.
