It is twenty minutes walk between TRIUMF and TRIUMF House. So in principle, one could take taxis from and to the Airport and then take some daily exercise. However, we anticipate that most participants will want either to have their own transportation or to arrange shared rental cars with colleagues. The City of Vancouver may also be explored on the excellent Transit System of which the University (UBC) is a hub. The fare is $2 and exact change is required.
