How to get to your new home

 

Today I am going to tell you about transportation. The transportation system in Ontario is well established and organized. You will never wait for a bus or taxi. If you are coming to Ontario, you will land at Toronto Pearson International Airport. You have 3 options to get to your final destination:

  1. The easiest and less stressful way for students is to ask for a pickup from college. Even if you spend hours at passport control at the airport or your flight is late, you don’t need to worry, that you will be left at the airport. The driver will be patiently waiting for you until you show up. The price varies depending on the college. Here you can find the price and a pickup request for Niagara College students.
  2. Another way is to take a taxi on a spot at the airport. The price will be higher, but, in case you are coming with somebody, it is better. You can split the bill and you can fit up to 3 people. You can take airport taxi or Uber. The estimated price you can calculate here.
  3. And for the most adventurous souls, the public transport is the best variant. If you are good at navigation and you are not shy to ask for help, it won’t be as difficult as you think. The route is following: at your terminal you should take Airport Rocket bus number 192=>it will bring you to the Kipling metro station. The bus goes every 15-20 minutes and you pay 3$ for the bus, it also includes a metro ticket. But please notice, you can’t use debit/credit cards to pay for the bus, and the driver won’t be able to give you change for 100$ bill.  Toronto underground system is very easy. It has only 2 lines that connect the whole city. You need to go to St. George station where you will switch the line and go to Dundas station. You will arrive at downtown, where Toronto Coach Terminal is located. From this terminal, you can go anywhere in Canada as well as to the USA. The ticket to your city, that you are going, if it is not Toronto, you can buy at the terminal. There are 3 main bus companies: Megabus, Greyhound and Go Transit that make your trip fast and comfortable.

Be safe!
