The London Transit Commission has several bus routes (2, 6, 9C, 10, 13, 31, 32, 33 and 34) that drop off somewhere on or near the university. Buses tend to run every 15 to 30 minutes (depending on the line, and day of the week). View a map of bus routes in London, and refer to this web app for an estimated bus arrival time for all stops.
The conference will take place at Western University in the North Campus Building, Room 295. The North Campus Building is located on Perth Drive, near the Labatt Visual Arts Building. A map of campus visitor parking is available here, and the Western accessibility map is available here.
