Buses detour off Airport Road,
April 27 to May 1

Update — Monday, April 27, 11:19 a.m.: GO has confirmed the detour.

The Region of Peel is again closing Airport Road between American and Bresler Drives overnight to accommodate the Greater Toronto Airport Authority’s “extensive maintenance” project on its LINK train or “People Mover” system.

This time, the Region is closing the road from Monday, April 27 until Friday, May 1 (early Tuesday, April 28 until early Saturday, May 2). Brampton Transit, GO Transit and Mississauga Transit have confirmed that they are detouring buses while Airport Road is closed. The TTC has not announced detours, but their buses likely follow the same detour.

Closing Airport Road affects these routes: Brampton Transit — 101 Airport Express; GO Transit — 34 Brampton Local via Dixon; Mississauga Transit — 7 Airport; TTC — 58 Malton.

Routings in the airport area are complex. For example, some TTC buses start and end their trips at the airport while others continue through the airport to continue their trips.

This is the likely route for all buses through the area when Airport Road is closed:

From 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. Monday, April 27 to Thursday, May 1, (early Tuesday, April 28 until early Friday May 2), southeastbound buses operate along their regular route to Airport Road and American Drive, then detour:

northward along American;
eastward along Viscount and Campus Roads; and then
southward along Bresler Drive to Airport Road / Jetliner Drive.

Buses then continue southward along Jetliner Drive, loop through Toronto Pearson International Airport and return to Jetliner Drive at Airport Road / Bresler Drive, resuming their regular route.

Northwestbound buses operate along their regular route to Airport Road and Jetliner Road / Bresler Drive, then detour:

southward along Jetliner Drive;
loop through Toronto Pearson International Airport;
returning to Jetliner Drive and Airport Road / Bresler Drive, then detouring

northward along Bresler Drive;
westward along Campus and Viscount Roads; and then
southward along American Drive to Airport Road,
resuming their regular route.
