Station Details

The Union Pearson Express downtown terminal is located right within Canada's busiest rail hub. The light-filled station was designed especially for UP Express guests, using a warm mix of natural materials.

Changes to UP Express service start April 28 

We’re introducing new direct UP Express service between Union Station and Pearson Airport, in both directions, to provide a seamless connection for those looking to travel between the airport and downtown Toronto. 

UP Express Digital signage is getting a makeover!

Digital information screens across the UP Express network are being replaced with an updated visual experience that will improve your experience at our stations.

We are consolidating and streamlining our digital signage systems to provide you with consistent experience across no matter where you start or end your journey with us. 

In the coming weeks, you will notice new screens, featuring: 

- A unique colour for each rail corridor

- An icon identifying accessible plaforms

- A lightning bolt symbol to indicate express trains

Schedule information, as well as important notices will stay the same, and current signage will remain in place while the new signs are rolled out.

The UP Express stop at Union Station can be easily found within the interior Skywalk walkway. Our station is rich in amenities to ensure you have a delightful wait while in transit, such as light refreshments from Balzac's coffee. Our friendly guest service representatives will be happy to help you at the customer service desk with any questions.

For guests continuing their journey, local connections to the TTC subway and streetcar lines, as well as GO Transit regional bus and train lines are an easy transfer away. For guests staying downtown, Union Station is located in the bustling heart of downtown, close to hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions and business centres in the Financial and Entertainment districts.

At Metrolinx your safety is our first priority. We ask guests to line up on the platform with their proof of payment ready for fare pre-validation. Guests who have already purchased a ticket or have tapped their PRESTO cards may join the lines, and have their payment quickly confirmed.  Guests with e-tickets must activate their tickets at least 5 minutes before boarding the train.  

  • Tickets can be purchased quickly and easily at the ticket vending machines, via the UP Express website.
  • Please allow yourself just a few extra minutes to board the train.

Please note that early morning and late night access to UP Union Station is available using the west entrance of the Great Hall (65 Front St West) before 05:30 weekdays and Saturdays (06:30 on Sundays/Holidays) and after 00:45 daily.
