FAQs

Where will we meet and how will we move between tour locations?

Participants are asked to meet at Blenz Coffee 508 W. Hastings St, no later than 9:00 am. From there, we will travel to the two tour stops as a group, on foot and via public transportation. Transit costs between offices will be covered as part of the event registration.


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Participants traveling to the event via public transit may take the SkyTrain or Canada Line into downtown and can easily walk to the meeting point from Waterfront SkyTrain stations. A number of buses also run into downtown.

If you are driving, personal vehicles can be left in any paid lot. Check Parkopedia for options. Parking costs will not be reimbursed. Vehicles can be picked up after the event. Due to the tight timelines we have made with the hosting offices, participants will not be permitted to take their own vehicles between tour locations.
