Airport authority shuts down LINK train
for "extensive maintenance", March 30

The Greater Toronto Airport Authority is shutting down its LINK train system (the “people mover”) at Toronto Pearson International Airport for “extensive maintenance”, starting at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, March 30.

The airport authority expects the trains will again be operating by early July.

To replace the LINK train, the authority is operating free shuttle buses to carry passengers between terminals and to and from parking areas.

Shuttle buses between Terminals 1 and 3 pick up and drop off passengers at the departures level, column 21 in Terminal 1 and the departures level, column 21 in Terminal 3.

Shuttle buses between the reduced-rate parking lot and the terminals pick up and drop off passengers at Kiosk K11 in the lot, the arrivals level, column C1 in Terminal 1 and the arrivals level column 43 in Terminal 3.

During the first few days of the maintenance, the Region of Peel is closing part of Airport Road overnight. Mississauga Transit has announced detours and Brampton Transit, GO Transit and the TTC are also likely detouring buses off Airport Road from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. March 30 until April 2.

The TTC is also relocating its bus stops at Terminal 3 for three months, starting at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, March 31.
