Airport And Roads In Toronto

There are two airports that serve the beautiful city of Toronto – the Lester B. Pearson International Airport and the Toronto City Centre Airport. Both of the airports can handle scheduled, private and corporate flights.

From the airport, travellers can easily access the city by train or by its road networks. Bus shuttle services and several transport methods are available.

The Lester B. Pearson International Airport is located 17 miles west of Toronto downtown. This beautiful airport in Toronto is considered to be the biggest and busiest airport in Canada.  Formerly ran by Transport Canada, it is now managed by the non-profit organisation known as the Greater Toronto Airports Authority.

Accessing the airport by car is quite simple, and you two options to choose from.  First, you can travel to the airport using Highway 427, the airport can be found just north of the Highway 401 interchange. The second option is travelling via Highway 409 and later connecting to Highway 401 which leads directly to the airport. Another transportation service to the airport in Toronto is by bus. This is a good way to experience the city of Toronto as it allows you to sit back and relax.  One of the best routes that can be taken in travelling to the airport is the 192 Airport Rocket Road. This route from Toronto City to the airport has limited stops.  The second major bus route that could be used is the 58A Malton Road, where there is also a minimal number of stops.

The Toronto City Centre Airport is located at the western tip of a series of islands in Toronto harbour, and can only be accessed by ferry boats. Although it is accessible only by boat, there is a train station located a point very close to the airport. Taxi services are used to transport people from the nearest dock to and from the airport.  Toronto City Centre Airport is a lot smaller than Lester B. Pearson International Airport but it has the capability to handle private, corporate and scheduled flights.
