How will we be getting around?


For our big excursions we will be either taking a schoolbus or getting around by the TTC (don't worry, you will be paired with a local CYMKivtsets who will make sure you get to your destination safely). For your arrival to the city ('The Six') we will do our best to coordinate a pick up from a local to take you to the hotel, or you can decide to get to the hotel on your own (Toronto has transportation methods such as Uber, Taxi services, the TTC, etc), but keep in mind that cost will be covered individually.




How can I arrange a pick up from the airport?


Luckly there will be a shuttle bus provided through the hotel that convention is held at. This service is FREE and can be arranged for a pickup from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel back to the airport. To have the shuttle bus pick you up from the airport make sure to call (905)238-0159 once you have arrived. This number calls the front desk of the hotel and they will arrange the shuttle for you.
