    To take the bus from the Sheraton Hotel to Water Street:
    Downtown shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance of the Sheraton Hotel, but if you wish to take the bus along Water Street, take the #10 bus. Get on at bus stop #2160 outside Caines Grocery (104 Duckworth Street) or at bus stop #1395 at 9 Military Road, near the entrance to Coffee Matters.

  • Car Rentals

    There are six car rental agencies located at the St. John's International Airport.
    If you're planning to rent a car, we strongly recommended that you reserve well in advance of the conference, as it's not unusual for there to be limited availability during the tourist season. Note that many companies do not offer unlimited mileage, so be sure to clarify the terms of your reservation.
