Buffalo Sabres vs Ottawa Senators Dec

We are planning a train trip from Buffalo NY to Ottawa for the game December 12. We would be arrived Thursday, the day of the game but plan on staying until Sunday. We would like to be centrally located so either walking or a short taxicab would be feasable. I understand the hockey arena is a good distance from downtown but maybe hotels offer shuttles? We don't really want to rent a vehicle if possible. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

You will want to get the express bus from the Rideau Centre to Scotiabank Place....it's definitely the most convenient option if you are not driving.....

As tdsuperstar mentions, the express bus is definitely the best option from downtown.... Be aware the arena has recently changed it name and is now called "Canadian Tire Centre".

For a more specific bus schedule, on the following OCTranspo link and follow "Connexion 400 - Canadian Tire Centre Events". Note today it appears to be broken.. but I'm sure it will be back shortly... Connexion 400 is definitely the service you want.
