Reminder: New Union Pearson Express fares take effect March 9

TORONTO: March 7, 2016 – New, lower fares for the Union Pearson Express (UP Express) are being introduced Wednesday, March 9 for service between Pearson International Airport and Toronto's downtown core.

UP Express passengers using a PRESTO card will be able to travel between Union Station to Pearson Airport for $9. The cost for those not using PRESTO will be $12.

For people in the Bloor and Weston communities looking for fast and frequent service, UP Express fares will be the same as GO fares, which means $4.71 for one stop and $5.02 for two stops, with a PRESTO card.

The trip between Union Station and Pearson takes just 25 minutes, with trains departing every 15 minutes, 19.5 hours a day. Since it opened in June 2015, UP Express has experienced a 97 per cent on-time performance rating, with 87 per cent of guests willing to recommend the service.
