All CANS 2014 attendees will be given a NYC metro card that can be used for subways and buses (NYC subway map inserted separately in welcome bag).

Due to the amount of early morning traffic in the area of the Sheraton Hotel and NYU, there will be CANS 2014 ambassadors stationed at the Sheraton on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings to escort groups of attendees to NYU via subway (D or E subway line).

A private bus will be available for transportation to the Sheraton on Monday night, to the Rubin Museum and Sheraton on Tuesday night as well as back to the hotel on Wednesday afternoon.

For more information on NYC and what to see or do, NYC tourist books have been given to all attendees in their welcome bag. Enjoy!
