Countdown to QUEUC: Planning your trip to Bishop’s University
By: Maryclare MacIsaac
With QUEUC only a few weeks away, it’s time for all of the lucky external delegates to get down to the details and plan your trip here! QUEUC is hosted at Bishop's University, which is located in Lennoxville, a small community within Sherbrooke, QC. The street address is 2600 College Street, Sherbrooke, QC, J1M 1Z7. In this post, we will answer all of your questions about how to get here.
Getting to Lennoxville…
By Plane: Sherbrooke is served by Pierre-Elliot Trudeau International Airport in Montreal. Once in Montreal, delegates will need to arrange travel to Sherbrooke, which is about 2 hours away.
Aeronavette (Aeroshuttle) is a shuttle service which operates between Pierre-Elliot Trudeau and Sherbrooke. You must pre-book your shuttle online, and they will either drop you off at Tim Hortons in Sherbrooke or take you directly to your destination for an extra fee. The round trip fee to Sherbrooke is $120 with the shuttle and $90 for a one way seat.
By Bus: Limocar is the main bus line running from Montreal to Sherbrooke. The price of a Limocar student ticket is $35. Once you have arrived at the terminal in Sherbrooke, it is approximately a 10 minute ($15) taxi to Bishop’s University or you can get on the #2 bus (make sure it is going in the right direction) and it will bring you to the campus. The bus fare in Sherbrooke is $3.30.
Driving: Take the A10 East from Montreal towards Sherbrooke. Take exit 140 onto the 410 towards Rue King Ouest. Take the Rue Belevedere S exit from the 410. Turn right at College Street. Bishop's University is located at 2600, College Street, just after the bridge.
Note: Another option is to join our QUEUC Rideshare Facebook page. On this page you will be able to post if you are looking for or offering a ride. This is also a good way to find out if anyone else in your school/area got into the conference and a nice way to meet people before the conference takes place.
