Local Ground Transportation.  Students are responsible for their own local ground transportation from their hotel to and from Rob's workshop.  Automobile is the recommended mode of local ground transportation.  Unfortunately, there is no convenient public transportation system (bus or train) in Grand Bay, but our students are great at sharing rides and car pooling.  If you are flying in, your choices for ground transportation is basically limited to airport rental car.   If you are not a Canadian resident we recommend you check with your auto insurance and see if they extend coverage to rental cars outside your home country; we have found that most insurance companies do not.
