Cycling- Conference attendees have access to two sources of inexpensive short-term loan cycles in Christchurch to help encourage sustainable transport (and fitness).
1. UC Student Association can provide hire bikes for free to attendees (first come, first served - only ten available!) The cycles come with a helmet and lock but no lights. Bring your own lights to use overnight. Pickup available from UCSA (ground floor library building) 9am-5pm with conference name badge and driver's licence ID.
2. Nextbike offers short term rental bikes with five locations around the city. Register for $4 on their website (30 minutes free with registration, $4/hr or $20/24hrs). Use your smartphone app or call to confirm pickup and dropoff points. Helmets and locks included.
Bus- the 'Purple Line' runs from the city centre through Hagley Park and along Riccarton Road before stopping at the University of Canterbury on Ilam Road (approx. 35 min travel time plus 5 min walk to venue). Other bus lines that run to or near the University of Canterbury include the Orbiter, Yellow Line, 120 & 130.
Airport transport- for buses, shuttles and taxis from/to the airport as well as around Christchurch visit:
Note: Taxi pick up point # 6, within the University campus, is the closest taxi stand to the venue.
