Adding new bus routes
We've been working with multiple municipal transit operators to bring new services and improve existing routes, as demand for transit to and from the airport grows.
In April 2018, we announced we’re working together with Metrolinx to complete the necessary technical work related to potential transit connections to Pearson Airport. Our work will include exploring a potential connection of the Kitchener rail corridor, the Eglinton Crosstown West, Finch LRT, Mississauga Bus Rapid Transit, and other local and regional bus services.
In November 2019, we released a whitepaper that summarized wide-ranging feedback from transit stakeholders across the region. Collected through extensive stakeholder listening, this research shows that Union Station West can play an important role in regional transit.
Given the well-understood benefits of transit, governments at all levels continue to assess and make decisions about the transit lines that could connect to Pearson Airport and its vast employment lands - and we're working to ensure they are aware of the value of the potential investment.
