ABOUT UP

UP Express connects the country's two busiest transportation hubs: Toronto Pearson International Airport and Union Station in downtown Toronto.
It’s North America’s first dedicated air-rail link, offering a 25-minutes journey from end to end, no matter what’s happening on the roads or in the weather forecast.
Trains depart every 15 minutes.

Why UP Express?

By 2031, Toronto Pearson International Airport and Union Station are projected to welcome about 190 million travellers a year combined – that’s half the current population of Canada month in, month out, and almost double today’s traffic. That is a big added strain on Toronto’s roads.
So it wasn’t surprising that when Metrolinx (the regional transportation authority for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area) announced back in 2008 that $16-billion in provincial funding would be used to transform transportation in Ontario, one of the first projects out of the gate was a dedicated air-rail link – a service that would become Union Pearson Express.
UP Express launched, on time and on budget, June 6, 2015.

An elevated travel experience

UP Express offers travellers an elevated experience – and we’re not just talking about the 28-metre high cement spur we created to connect to the Airport.
Travellers are at the centre of everything UP does – from free Wi-Fi on trains and in stations (courtesy of CIBC), airline check-in kiosks where you can print boarding passes and baggage tags, or services like up-to-the minute flight information or charging stations for all your devices. UP also offers level boarding and plenty of storage so bags and strollers are never a worry.
If there is ever anything we can help you with, don’t hesitate to ask!

Speed, convenience and reliability – to the Airport or Downtown

UP was designed for the comfort and ease of travellers, whether you’re headed out of town or just downtown. Conveniently located in two of the city’s most established and vibrant communities, UP is also the perfect way to get downtown from our Bloor and Weston stations.
Fast. Reliable. Smart. UP Express.
