Taking the train to Pearson is soon about to become easier for Guelph, Kitchener and Acton residents.
Residents who wish to take the train can avoid going all the way to Union , and back (since the train goes right by the Airport) by getting off your GO train at Weston Station you can transfer to UPX at a fraction of the cost of the union-pearson ride. Total cost for GO and UPX ride is $22.56 one way transferring at weston.
$22.56 is for Guelph residents, will be higher for Kitchener and likely lower for Acton.
VIA trains will NOT transfer at Weston, but you can ride VIA to Union Station then tranfer to UPX if you choose to.
The full fare (Union-Pearson) cost of the Airport Rail link from Union is $19 with a presto card, or $11.40 from Weston (Adult fare, presto card). Add $2 if you purchase on board the train, and fares higher without the card.
Since we’re the only Train route directly on the rail link, this is our advantage. Be sure to use it
Oh – and if you anticipate using the service, get a presto card in advance.
