Transit and
Accommodations
 

Victoria is on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. (Click on this for a map for our location)

To get here by car from Vancouver BC you will need to take a ferry (there are no bridges), or by foot, bus or plane (its way too far to swim).

Transit Options are:

  •  BC Ferries - click here for the BC Ferry schedules.  It is a 1 hour and 35 minute trip through the Gulf Island, it will take 30 minutes to unload, and another 35 to 40 minutes to drive into downtown Victoria, so please allow for plenty of travel time from Vancouver or the lower mainland.
  • The famous Coho Ferry from Port Angeles, WA, to Victoria. It has 1 or 2 sailings daily - click here from MV Coho schedules. Coming to Victoria you must be at the terminal at least an hour a head of time to by car, or 20 minutes if by foot. Headed back you must be at the terminal 90 minutes prior to leaving due to US Boarder security. This is a 90 minute trip, but takes you down-town Victoria.
By foot your options are:
  • BC Transit runs a relatively inexpensive connection to the BC Ferries Terminals in Victoria for ferries foot passengers, but these are city busses, so pack light as they due not accommodate a lot of luggage. Click here for rout map at this end.  On the other side (Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal) the Translink will take you to Vancouver International Airport. Click here for for the Translink trip planner. 
  • The Pacific Coach Lines trips daily to Victoria from Vancouver, and between Seattle and Vancouver.  It runs between downtown bus stations, picking up at major hotels, and along route at certain locations. You can also connect with them on the BC Ferries ships. Call them for details.  Cost may very depending on where you join them.
  • The Victoria Clipper is a high speed catamaran that runs daily form Seatle to Victoria, harbour to harbour See their web site for details.  Travel time is 2 hours 45 minutes.
  • Harbour Air or Westcoast Air will get you from Vancouver Hourbour  to Downtown Victoria. 
  • Kenmore Air  flies between Seattle Lake Union and Victoria's inner harbour.
  • Alaska Air/Horizon air can bring you here form much of the US, with Horizon servicing Victoria International Airport (YYJ).
  • Air Canada and West Jet fly in and out of YYJ daily form all sorts of places.

Transit While in Victoria:

Victoria has a reasonable good buss schedule, and an competitive taxi service.

All hash events will occur downtown within walking distance or a short cab distance from the Inner Harbour.

The web master will post any plans or suggestion that the organizing committee comes up with on this site as and when they come available.

Accommodations:

There are a wide variety of hotels and inns in Victoria all available through Tourism Victoria, from the rustic Ocean Island Backpackers Inn to the venerable Fairmont Empress.  To get a complete list of hotel in the Victoria area use Tourism Victoria's Business Directory

Bike Rental:

There are two bike rental places around the conference centre and close to Beacon Hill park and the start of the CRRAP.  We have confirmed with both that they will be open on the first weekend in November.
Details below:
  • The Peddler (http://www.thepedaler.ca/) 719 Douglas St. (Crystal Gardens) Hours - he'll be open when needed. Rates - $7/hr, $18/3hr, or $28/8hr... Sign says 20% discount for groups of 4+
  • Cycle BC Rentals & Tours (http://www.cyclebc.ca/bicycles) 685 Humbolt St. (Corner of Humbolt and Douglas) Hours - they guess their hours will be 10am to 4pm at that time of year Rates - $7/hr, $28/day
Both seem to have decent city/hybrid bikes, Cycle BC will rent performance or Mountain bikes for a bit more.  The Pedaler is run by the owner and seems more local and flexible with times.... and a posted group discount without even asking.
