By Air

Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) is located west of Toronto, about 30-40 minutes by car or taxi. The Toronto City Centre Airport is a small airport located on the Toronto Islands, close to the downtown core.

Airport Connections to YYZ
  • By Subway: The 192 Airport Rocket (bus) connects the airport to Kipling station on the Bloor subway line. The bus runs every half an hour or so, less often off-peak, and you need exact change to pay ($2.75). It stops at all the terminals, but you may need to go up or down a floor from arrivals. The Kipling station is 15 subway stops to St. George (the bus and subway are included in one fare). Travel between the airport and St. George takes just over one hour. (Subway service begins at 9:00 am on Sunday and 6:00am other days). More information: TTC web site for airport service.
  • By Shuttle Bus: Airport Express provides a shuttle service to and from several downtown hotels (including the Delta Chelsea and the Chestnut St. Student Residence/Metropolitan Hotel) to the airport for $18.50 (a return ticket is $29.95) . You can buy your tickets on-line or directly from the bus driver.
  • By Taxi: The flat-rate fare to/from downtown will be $46 plus tip. There are two kinds of taxis: limos and taxis. The limo drivers wear a hat and cost $5 more. Takes about 1/2 hour. The standard tip is 15%. Trips to the airport may be arranged in advance by calling an airport taxi company. Alternatively, you may take a regular city taxi to the airport. If you do so, you have the option of negotiating a flat rate with the driver before you set off. If you negotiate a flat rate, the driver is required to put the meter on and charge you the lesser of the flat rate you negotiated and the charge on the meter. Most taxis and limos accept credit cards.
  • By Rental Car: Rental car agencies are available on-site at Toronto Pearson with 24-hour support to reserve, pick-up, and return rental vehicles. For more information, please contact the car rental agencies on the aforementioned Toronto Pearson web page.
