Union Pearson Express Tickets

Cheaper Union Pearson Express fares start today

The oft-derided Union Pearson Express might seem a little more appealing today. That's because the tickets for the train, which runs between Pearson Airport and Union Station, are now cheaper.

A one-way trip will cost you $12, or $9 if you have a Presto card. That's a huge decrease, considering tickets used to cost $27.50 and $19, respectively, when the UP Express launched back in June 2015.

Best of all, those looking to use the UPX as a commuter train - to get to one of the interim stops between Pearson and Weston Road, for instance - now have to pay less than $6 to hop on board.

The UPX hasn't really picked up steam since launching in June 2015 - at one point it was running at just 10 percent capacity. Hopefully, these friendlier fare prices will help.

Will you use the Union Pearson Express now that prices are cheaper? Let us know in the comments.
