Arriving in TO


@ TORONTO ISLAND (city center airport)

Porter Airlines (and some Air Canada flights) now fly into Toronto Island (Toronto city centre), which brings you directly to downtown Toronto. (Map)

Taxi: U of T/ the Holiday Inn are a 10-20 minute (and approx. $10-20) taxi ride from the airport.

Public transportation: At Bathurst st, take the #511  streetcar North to Bloor St. At Bathurst station, transfer to the subway (Bloor line, east), take two stops to St. George Station.


Upon arrival at Pearson, you will see big signs directing you to the Taxi, TTC (Toronto Transit) or Hotel Express bus.

Taxi:  A taxi downtown is approximately $50 and will take approximately 30 min, depending on traffic.

TTC (bus/subway): Taking the TTC downtown is simple, convenient and costs $3.  The trip takes approximately 40- 60 min.  The bus stop is just outside the arrival doors on the median. Take the 192 Rocket (express) bus to Keele subway station and transfer to the Bloor-Danforth subway going east (this is the only option).  The St. George subway stop is steps from the Holiday Inn and a 5 minute walk to the conference location at U of T.

Express Bus:  The  Toronto Airport Express bus ($24) which goes from the airport to several other downtown hotel locations.


Via Rail or the Go Train will bring you to Union Station in Toronto.  From there take the University line subway to the St. George station (to arrive at U of T or the Holiday Inn on Bloor St.).


Downtown Toronto is easy to navigate by Subway and streetcar. Here is an interactive TTC subway map   (The U of T and Holiday Inn are closest to the St. George and Spadina stops.)
