Public Transit Outside of Toronto

Several public transit systems are available to students living outside of Toronto's boundaries. More information can be found at Triplinx: Trip Planner.

Taxi / Limousine

You can take a taxi directly from the airport to York University’s Keele or Glendon Campuses. While this option will cost much more than public transit, it is much quicker and more convenient if you are traveling with a large amount of luggage.

A taxi from the airport to Keele or Glendon will cost approximately $60 and take approximately 30 minutes (more information).

Uber

Uber and similar app-based transportation services are legal in Toronto, however, they are not officially recommended.

Union-Pearson Express (Downtown)

Toronto also offers a fare-based transportation service called the Union-Pearson Express  that provides transportation by a special train from Pearson Airport to Union Station downtown in less than 30 minutes.
