Frequently Asked Questions
Are the after-dinner activities mandatory?
Not at all! You are more than welcome to participate in the night plans but are not obligated to. If you choose to not participate, the time is yours to do as you wish.
Will we need to worry about Uber service during our trip?
AIM has either secured a shuttle for a planned activity or we will be within walking distance of our destination.
To head back to the airport, just take the same Canada Line as you did when you arrived.
