The Union Pearson Express will provide a high-quality express rail shuttle
service between Union Station and Pearson Airport, creating an important link
for business people and travellers. Metrolinx will be responsible for the
project including design, construction and operations. Metrolinx's operating
division, GO Transit, has a 40-year track record of running a successful
passenger rail service.
In time for the 2015 Pan Am Games, 140 airport shuttles operating
approximately every 15 minutes will run daily between the Pearson International
Airport and downtown Toronto. It will offer travellers more choices to connect
between Canada's two busiest transportation hubs. The Union Pearson Express will
stop at the Bloor GO and Weston GO stations, and will take 1.2 million car trips
off our roads in its first year of operation alone.
