54th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Archaeological Association

Conference and Event Locations


Getting to the Westin Hotel:

  1. All international and interprovincial flights arrive at Edmonton International Airport, which is located about a 40 minute drive south of the city (see https://flyeia.com/parking-transportation/directions-street-maps/).
  2. The easiest (but not the cheapest!) way to get to your hotel from the Airport is to take an Airport Taxi (see https://www.airporttaxiservice.ca/ ). The fare from the airport to the Westin Edmonton is $55. Edmonton also has Uber (https://www.uber.com/global/en/cities/edmonton/) and estimates for travel from the airport range from $36-$60. 
  3. There are transit options from the airport, but they tend to be infrequent. For information about transit options, visit this website: https://www.edmonton.ca/ets/edmonton-international-airport. Note that masks are mandatory on transit
  4. Another affordable option is the Skyshuttle. For information and prebooking, visit their website: https://edmontonskyshuttle.com/
  5. For a list of taxi companies and their telephone numbers see: https://edmtaxi.com/
  6. If you prefer to be more mobile, most major car rental companies have outlets at the Airport. See https://flyeia.com/parking-transportation/car-rentals/
  7. Another option from the Airport is to take the bus (https://flyeia.com/parking-transportation/747-bus/ ). Edmonton Transit runs the 747 bus service, which drops at the Century Park Transit Centre. The fare is $5, cash. From there, the LRT goes downtown; the closest stop to the Westin Edmonton is Churchill Station.
  8. If you are travelling from the US or another international location, remember that you will need a passport to go through the border control at the airport.
