A cheaper way to get to and from Toronto Pearson AirportEach Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes as a comment on my post on how to get from Toronto Pearson to downtown Toronto left by reader Daniel:

“Whenever we fly to Toronto to visit friends, we use an option which you didn’t mention. This is the ‘public transportation’ option which existed before the Express Train which costs ~$12 CAD. Directly outside the arrivals terminals, you can pick up the #192 bus (called the Rocket) which goes non-stop to the Kipling Station of the Toronto subway. The buses accommodate luggage very easily and the cost is only about $3-4 CAD and even less for seniors. The buses run every 15 minutes and take less than 15 minutes to get to the subway station. That far out of the city, there is usually very little traffic.

“Then you switch to the #2 subway which brings you into Toronto. The advantage also is that you can get off wherever you want in Toronto rather than having to go all the way down to Union Station. The whole process takes less than an hour. Yes, it has a lot more stops, but if you are going anywhere north of the downtown area, it actually saves time (and money!) Google Maps presents this option in complete detail. It’s worth looking at!”

Thanks, Daniel!

    Thanks for the tip regarding Toronto Pearson Airport-we took the train to Union station and stayed right across he street at the Intercontinental City Center. Flew out to Boston with Porter-free drinks and snacks, just like the old days!
