Accommodation and Travel
How to get here
Public Transit: The Airport Rocket provides all-day, regular accessible express bus service between Kipling Station on the Bloor-Danforth Subway and Pearson International Airport. Travel time would be about 45 minutes and would cost the value of a TTC ticket (Cdn$3 as of 2010).
Taxis: Taxis to hotels in downtown Toronto cost between Cdn$40 and Cdn$50, plus tip, and take about 30 – 40 mins.
Limousines: Limousines to hotels in downtown Toronto cost between Cdn$45 and Cdn$55, plus tip, and take about 30 – 40 mins. Limousines are comfortable sedans, typically black, that operate similarly to taxis, but offer a higher standard of service and newer vehicles. Limousines are available outside of every terminal. The City of Toronto licenses the limousines that service Toronto Pearson International Airport to ensure safety standards and fare consistency. Rates are predetermined based on the time and distance to your destination within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
Airport Express Shuttle: The Airport Express takes about 40 minutes to reach downtown Toronto and costs about Cdn$23.95 one way (plus tip). The Airport Express Shuttle runs from the arrivals terminal at Pearson International Airport to downtown Toronto hotels every 20 minutes during peak periods, or 30 minutes during non-peak times.
