Getting here

Flights Windsor is serviced well by public transport (air and rail). Our international airport is very efficient and is serviced by Porter, Air Canada, and WestJet Airlines. Both Porter and Air Canada generally offer a 10% discount for CAUBO members (check your institutional travel policy for details). Both Porter and Air Canada fly several times a day to Windsor from Toronto (a 40min flight), and prices start at around $170 each way from Ottawa, or $104 each way from Toronto.

Train Via Rail also runs services to Windsor from Toronto and surrounds four times daily and prices are currently around $46 one way for Escape fares, or $79 for business class (highly recommended!) Via also offers 10% discount to CAUBO members. The train takes approximately 4hrs from Toronto.

Driving Windsor is a pleasant 4-5 hr drive down the 401 from Toronto area. The University is right next to the Ambassador bridge, so you can take the 401 almost all the way to the University.
