How do I use this service?

  • Once you land at the Edmonton International Airport, please pick up your checked luggage and make your way to the arrivals level, next to the Circle K convenience store and Door 9, across from Baggage Carousel 6. 
  • Identify yourself as a student to the taxi driver and show the service document you received from the International Office. Without this service document you will not receive the $15 subsidy and will be responsible for the entire taxi fare.
