Transit

A Vision for Regional Transit at Pearson

A Regional Transit Centre located in the airport area can be the solution that makes it easier to get around the region.


GTA Transit Map 

A Regional Transit Centre in the airport area could help Southern Ontario:

  • Stay on the path for continued sustainable growth and prosperity
  • Take cars off the road and reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Connect workers to jobs and help employers attract and retain talent

The Pearson area has is evolving into an important crossing point for regional transit. Getting to, from and around the Airport Employment Zone is faster and more convenient with the addition of new bus routes – but more must be done.

In 2019, the Provincial Government unveiled an ambitious $28.5 billion transit plan, naming the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension as a priority project. In May 2021, the federal government stepped up and announced a substantial investment into Ontario’s priority transit projects, including the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension—$12 billion dollars.

To help bring this vision for a Regional Transit Centre to reality, leaders from across the GTA are calling on all levels of government to step up and steer this transformative infrastructure opportunity. Government should maintain the project’s momentum and step in to drive the next phases of work on this vision. Specifically, the airport has applied for government support to help advance work on the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension.
