Union Pearson Express

Union-Pearson Express opening date pegged for June 6

A rail link between Union Station and Pearson International will finally be a reality for commuters in Toronto as of June 6. Premier Kathleen Wynne announced the opening date for the UP Express at a press event this morning, during which she took a ride on the brand new train.

The CBC reports that it took the Premier 23 minutes to make her journey, which is a bit faster than the projected duration of 25 minutes on account of the fact that the train skipped two stops. Travellers won't get to do that, but at least the service will be in place well before the arrival of the Pan Am Games this summer.

As always seems to be the case in Toronto with services of this type, this is one of the most expensive air-rail connections in North America, with a one-way fare coming in at $19 for Presto cardholders and $27.50 for everyone else.

All aboard.
