Air Transportation and Ground Transportation from Pearson Airport
Flights should be booked to arrive at Lester B. Pearson International
Airport in Toronto. (Short haul flights may arrive at the Island Airport,
closer to downtown.)
Ground Transportation from Pearson Airport
Limousines are marginally cheaper than taxis for the trip downtown. You
may either get in the taxi queue, or, to take a limousine, go to the kiosk
marked "Limousines" immediately outside any one of the terminals or reserve
a car by calling:
Airport Services (1-800-263-6135) $28.00
The trip downtown could take as little as 30 minutes, depending on traffic
or up to one and a half hours.
Air Flight Services (1-800-268-6843) $31.00.
- By Bus:
Bus kiosks are found immediately outside the terminals on the arrivals
level. Here you can buy tickets ($11.00 one way, $19.70 return) and this
is also where the bus picks up passengers. These buses will take 50
minutes or more, depending on traffic, to get downtown.
The buses stop at some major hotels in the downtown core:
to transfer to the subway, get off at the Royal York Hotel across the
street from Union Station;
to take a taxi to the Institute or to your hotel, get off at the Delta
Chelsea Hotel at Bay and Bloor.
Trains arrive at Union Station in downtown Toronto, which connects into the
Union subway station underground.

Inter-city buses arrive at the downtown Toronto Bus Terminal at Bay and
Dundas, which connects underground to the Dundas Subway station.
