## Where to stay

Attendees are encouraged to stay at one of the [[recommended hotels|Events/XDC2015/Hotels]].

## Where to eat

## Transportation

There are several different public transportation systems that operate in and
around the GTA.  They all offer some kind of weekly pass, however these
weekly passes don't really offer much value and may not be transferable
across different systems.

It is recommended that you purchase single ride tickets for the bus
/ subway.  If you are flying into Toronto, try to ask for $2 CAD coins
(known as twoonies) from the currency exchange booths to make it easier
to pay for fares.  If you are not staying on the York University campus,
you will need: 3 Days * 2 trips per day * $4.00 CAD per trip = $24 CAD
for transportation to/from your hotel and XDC.  Plus additional fares for
trips to/from the airport and evening events.

## Travel Sponsoring

If you are not on a corporate budget but have something to present, please contact the X.Org Foundation Board of Directors [[board@foundation.x.org]] for travel sponsorship.
