Convention 2018: Transit options

After you land at Pearson International Airport for the 2018 Rotary International Convention in Toronto, from 23 to 27 June, there are many ways to get into the city. 

You could take a taxi or airport limo. If you want to tour the area on your own, you could rent a car. But you could also save money by taking the express light rail train or public transportation.

Toronto Transit Commission's unlimited passes cost  $12.50 for a day or $43.75 for a week (seniors $34.75). 

The Union Pearson Express departs the airport for Union Station every 15 minutes. A round-trip ticket for the 25-minute ride is CA$24.70; seniors pay half that amount. 

You might instead take one of the buses run by the Toronto Transit Commission (commonly known as the TTC). The 192 Airport Rocket will get you downtown in 45 minutes.

The TTC includes a vast system of buses, subways, and streetcars. You can use all these services during a one-way trip as long as you have a paper transfer. Each trip is roughly $3, less for seniors and students, and can be paid for through cash or token. 

If you plan on exploring Toronto during the convention, you can buy a pass that provides unlimited travel around the city for a day ($12.50) or a week ($43.75, seniors $34.75). – Randi Druzin
