Airport Transportation – From Pearson International Airport (YYZ)       

Toronto’s Pearson International Airport is located north-west of the city, 40 kms from downtown core. The following transit options are available.

Limousines and Taxis

Limousines and taxis are readily available at all three terminals in the airport. The flat fare from the Pearson International Airport to downtown for taxis is approximately CD$55.00 and for limousines is CD$60.00 (depending on your destination and including tax but not gratuity). Allow 30 minutes transit time.

Union Pearson Express (beginning spring/summer 2015)

Currently under construction, the Union Pearson Express will connect the SkyWalk adjacent to Union Station in downtown Toronto with the LINK station attached to the airport's Terminal 1, with additional stops at Bloor and Weston GO station.  Prices, schedules, and an exact launch date have not yet been announced.

Public Transit:

There isn't direct subway or train service to/from the airport, but regular, wheelchair-accessible city buses connect the airport with the subway system.  The Toronto transit system is safe and provides frequent service 365 days a year from around 5:30 am (8:30 am on Sundays) to 1 am.  Overnight, the airport is served by less-frequent night buses.

The “192 Airport Rocket” runs express buses from the airport to Kipling subway station every 8 to 15 minutes.

- You can catch the 192 Airport Rocket bus on the lowest level of either terminal (column R4 in terminal 1, columns C8-C12 in terminal 3).

- At Kipling subway station (the last stop on the bus), transfer to the eastbound Bloor/Danforth subway line.  Kipling has elevators and escalators.  As Kipling is the end of the line, downtown trains leave from either side of the platform.

- For the Intercontinental Toronto Yorkville Hotel get off at St. George Station and exit the station at Bedford Street, then walk east on Bloor Street for one block. Allow 60 to 90 minutes.

Fares on all city routes are $3.00 cash, 3 tickets for $8.10 or 7 tickets for $18.90 or $11.00 for a one day pass. You must deposit cash or a ticket or token on the bus. Drivers do not sell tickets or give change. Tickets may be purchased at a vending machine in Terminal 1 ground level or at most subway stations in Toronto.

Rental Cars

Rental vehicles are readily available at the airport. These are not recommended unless you are traveling outside the city. Parking at the Toronto hotels can be expensive, from $20.00 to $40.00 per day.

Airport Transportation – From Toronto Island Airport (Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport YTZ)

Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport is just minutes from downtown Toronto, at the foot of Bathurst Street. One of the world’s shortest ferry rides (121 metres) to and from the mainland runs every 15 minutes and is free for pedestrians.

Once on the mainland you have two options.

-        You can take the complimentary shuttle bus to Front Street, just across from Union Station. From there you can take the subway north on the University Line to Museum Station. Exit the station and walk north to Bloor Street, then west to the Intercontinental.

-        Take a taxi from the taxi stand just outside the mainland terminal to the hotel. Fare is approximately CD$15.00.
