London is located in Southwestern Ontario, about midway between Toronto and Detroit. Conference participants may wish to fly directly to London, through London International Airport (YXU), or by taking a shuttle from either Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) or Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). From Toronto, the shuttle bus takes 2 hours and 15 minutes and costs approximately $66 one way. From Detroit, the travel time is 3 hours and thirty minutes and costs approximately $74. If you wish to be dropped off at your hotel, an additional fee of $15 applies. Return fares are simply twice the one-way fare. A link allowing you to make an online reservation for the shuttle bus service can be found below.
