Travel and Accomodations

Traveling to London, ON

Getting Here:

There are several options for getting to London. The most direct is to fly to London International Airport and either rent a car there or take a taxi or bus to the hotel or to campus. Three airlines fly to London: Air Canada (from Toronto or Ottawa), Westjet (from Winnipeg or Calgary) and United Airlines (from Chicago). If travelling from the US or Europe via Toronto, you will have to pick up your baggage in Toronto and clear Canadian Customs before rechecking the baggage for the onward flight. When travelling back, U.S.- bound travelers will clear U.S. customs in Toronto.

Alternatively, it is often cheaper to fly to either Toronto, Detroit, or Buffalo and take a shuttle, train or bus to London. Shuttle services with a door-to-door service option go directly from Toronto and Detroit airports to London. Contact:

Robert Q (http://www.robertq.com/) or About Town (http://www.aboutownairbus.ca/) for options.

For rail information from Toronto or Detroit see Via Rail’s website (taking the train from Detroit will involve crossing to Windsor). www.viarail.com

The train station in London where you will arrive is at 205 York St. The hotel is 15 to 20 minute walk north on Richmond St (half a block west of the station) or one can take a taxi as many will be waiting outside the station. The Northbound Richmond, Oxford East and Huron Heights buses also leave from near the station.

For arriving by train from Buffalo see Amtrak’s website at www.amtrak.com

For bus options see Greyhound. From the United States www.greyhound.com or from Canada http://www.greyhound.ca

If one chooses to rent a car and drive the main highway connecting London to Toronto, Windsor and other major destinations is Highway 401.
