VIA Rail expands service to Toronto airport


VIA Rail Canada Inc. riders can now book a connecting trip between Toronto Pearson International Airport and Toronto's Union Station with the Union Pearson Express in a single transaction, the railroads announced yesterday.

The agreement allows passengers to book a Union Pearson Express trip when purchasing their VIA Rail tickets. Customers will receive a combined itinerary for both parts of their journey, Union Pearson Express officials said in a statement.

"With this partnership, we are certain that guests of Union Pearson Express and VIA will benefit from a seamless journey from points leading into and out of Union Station through to Toronto Pearson," said Union Pearson Express President Kathy Haley in a statement.

Designed to enable easier access to Canada's busiest airport, the new Union Pearson Express agreement brings the number of VIA Rail's intermodal partners to 22 across the country.
