A FREE fully accessible shuttle bus will run from the Main Gate (York Boulevard and Keele Street), starting at 4:30 p.m. today and every 20 minutes until 8:30 p.m. (or until 30 minutes after the end of the meeting, if it runs later than 8:00 p.m.). The shuttle will drop off members at the west entrance to the Rexall Centre, in the rear parking lot. The shuttle will depart from the same location and return members to the Main Gate, starting at 4:50 p.m. and every 20 minutes until the meeting ends. After 7:00 p.m., the shuttle will drop off members in front of Vari Hall, instead of at the Main Gate.

The Rexall Centre is owned by Tennis Canada and is not legally part of the York University campus; therefore, members will not be crossing picket lines in order to access the venue.

In terms of accessibility, the Rexall Centre is wheelchair accessible, immediately adjacent to the York University campus, and served by the same TTC bus service (106 York University) with the same frequency as the Montecassino Hotel.
