Hi There!

Welcome to my blog.

I love cities - glam - airlines  -  and photography.  All of the images on this site were taken by me on my travels around the planet.

The Pearson Airport Express Review - Toronto (YYZ)

The Pearson Airport Express Review - Toronto (YYZ)

Torontonians are buzzing about a new way to get to the airport:  The Pearson Express. It launched during the Pan Am games – and has become extremely popular (…once they dropped the fares).   I recently had the pleasure of using this service– and here is my review:

Tickets

For $9, I jetted on the Express between Toronto and the airport.  (If you don't have a Toronto Transit Card it's still cheap:  $12).  Compared to a taxi - this was a complete steal. Getting a ticked was simple. I used an automated vending machine, but there were old-fashioned ticket counters with humans available as well.

Route

In less than 25 minutes, the train streaked between the airport and Union Station in downtown Toronto – where it was easy to transfer to the subway, regional and metro trains.  The Express made two stops along the way – one at Weston and one at Bloor. The stations were mod and had an airport-glam vibe to them.

The Pearson Express had sleak, comfy seats with plenty of room and built in amenities. They are actually quite futuristic.  Each one came equipped with a table and charging outlet (for a trip that is less than 25 minutes!).  Free Wifi was available – so I was connected for the entire journey
