  • Taxis to downtown Toronto cost ~55.00 plus tip (~30-60 minutes). Follow signs to the taxi queue.
  • Downtown Express Bus coach service provides direct transportation to a number of downtown Toronto hotels. The bus leaves from airport Terminals 1 and 3 and you can purchase tickets at the booth upon arrival or online for ~$28.00 (~45-90 minutes)
  • Union Pearson Express Train connects YYZ to Toronto’s Union Station for $12.00 (one way, ~25 minutes)
  • Toronto Transit Commission (TTC): There is no direct public transit from YYZ to downtown, but there are city buses that connect to the subway system for $3.25 (~60-90 minutes)
