UP Express is up and running
June 6, 2015 marked the opening of the long-awaited Union Pearson Express – on time and on budget. UP Express is North America’s first dedicated express rail train, providing reliable, predictable service between Union Station and Toronto Pearson in just 25 minutes, with trains departing every 15 minutes, 19 ½ hours a day. It is one more option to move travellers and tourists between these two major transportation hubs, and in the first year alone it will take over 1.2 million cars off the road.
UP Express is a key part of Metrolinx’s regional transportation plan for the GTHA, and a concrete demonstration of the progress we are making to relieve gridlock and get the region moving. In fact, it’s just one aspect of $22 billion worth of transportation investments that Metrolinx and the Province of Ontario already have underway to create a convenient, integrated and faster transit network.

New fare structure takes effect March 9, 2016
UP Express is introducing a new fare structure that makes travel to and from the airport, or even within the city, even better for travellers.
Starting Monday March 9, 2016 the new one-way fare from downtown Toronto to Pearson Airport will be $9 with a PRESTO card – that’s a $10 savings one way. That’s not all. For those people looking for a faster, more frequent way to get downtown from the Bloor and Weston communities, the savings are even greater with prices that match GO fares.
