Instructions and Information
The University of Toronto Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Physics Department, the Mathematics Department, and CITA, as well as the Perimeter Institute, are jointly operating a shuttle service between the two institutions. Funding is renewed year-by-year based on demand, and has currently been approved until the end of 2020.
Presently, the shuttle operates as a return trip from U of T to PI in the morning (default 9am) and back in the afternoon (default 5pm) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Additionally, Perimeter researchers may travel to UoT on Fridays following the PI-UoT Collaborative Travel Policy.
For more information on the shuttle, please contact Helen Iyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Prof. David Curtin (email@example.com).
If you booked a trip and cannot make it, please cancel your booking on this website before 7am (morning trips and two-way) or 11am (evening trip only) the day of the ride. On the day of the ride, the system will check if there have been cancellations, or if the bookings are for the morning/evening only, and it will automatically cancel the morning trip, evening trip, or both, as needed. If you miss these deadlines, email Helen Iyer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
When making a booking, you can indicate whether you would like to return later in the evening than the standard 5pm time, e.g. to stay for dinner. This is a secret vote to avoid peer-pressure. If all passengers prefer a late return, the system will send the passengers an email and you then have the option to coordinate amongst each other to rebook the taxi for the later time that you prefer.
Office Space at Perimeter:
Perimeter has limited office space, and occasionally there might not be visitor offices available. In that case the Reflecting Lounge on the ground floor is usually reserved as office space for visitors from Toronto, please take advantage if needed.
