Union Pearson Express trains get rolling
June 6



Premier Kathleen Wynne rode a Union Pearson Express train to day Wednesday, April 22 to announce that the trains officially go into service Saturday, June 6, linking Toronto Pearson International Airport with Union Station.

Metroinx predicts that UP Express trains will carry 2.35 million passengers a year by 2018. Toronto Pearson and Union Station are Canada’s busiest transportation hubs — and likely will serve 190 million travellers a year by 2031 — twice their current annual traffic.

The government and Metrolinx expect that the airport-to-downtown rail link will remove 1.2 million car trips from roads across the region in its first year of operation alone.
