TRANSIT FLY Review: While there is no direct train service from Toronto
Pearson International Airport to the downtown area, several very good airport
transportation options are available. Various airport shuttle operators provide
service from the Toronto Airport to cities such as: Hamilton, London, Detroit,
Niagara, Buffalo and many others. For service to Downtown Toronto hotels the
Pacific Western Toronto Airport Express Shuttle provides direct service. Those
traveling with less luggage, the TTC offers several subway system connector
buses including the Route #192 Airport Rocket Bus that takes passengers to the
Kipling Subway Station in only 20 minutes (Kipling is the nearest station from
YYZ). From the Kipling Subway Station passengers can reach Central Toronto
by train in only 25-30 minutes.
