I have an interview in Sudbury this Sunday and I was wondering if there are some insiders who know an efficient/cheap way to transit from the airport to the city at around 9:30 PM? Would you recommend going with a specific hotel in the area, one that would offer shuttle from the airport maybe? Thanks and good luck to all of you with the interviews! :)
