Directions from Pearson International Airport (YYZ)

Transportation options include taxi or ride sharing options such as Uber or Lyft or public transportation (TTC). Although public transportation is cheaper, the shortest and most direct route is a taxi/ride share and we highly recommend this. 

Taxi/Ride Sharing

To take a taxi from Terminal 1 Arrivals, go to Door D (Map) and for Terminal 3 Arrivals, go to door D, E or F (Map).

Taxis charge flat rates for travel from the airport to destinations within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) based on time and distance. You can pay for your fare with cash, credit card or debit. Always confirm the airport taxi rates with the driver before leaving the terminal.
