Toronto recently launched the first dedicated air/rail link in North America. This new service takes you from downtown Toronto (Union Station) to Pearson International Airport in 25 min. (and vice versa). Regardless of the time of day. Called UP Express (Union, Pearson Express), “UP” for short, this new airport transportation is a welcome addition for both groups and independent travelers.
For today’s video venue showcase Andrew and Randy take UP to the airport. They met with Vanessa Barrasa, Spokesperson for UP Express, to get the details on how this rail link operates, specifically for groups. As Vanessa tells MasterTheEvent, there are special packages specifically tailored to groups and conventions. UP Express will work with meeting and event planners to create a custom airport transportation program. A nice added bonus is that there are special fares available for meet and greet personnel.

Have a Toronto Layover? Why Not Have a Micro-Holiday
As one of the world’s busiest, Toronto’s International Airport is an active hub for travelers connecting to other destinations. Up until now, if travelers had several hours between flights, they would often be spent within the airport; shopping, dining etc. Now, with only a 25 min. travel time, these travelers can take advantage of the UP Express and head downtown for a mini-visit. Toronto’s Union Station is in the heart of downtown Toronto.
Take a look as Randy and Andrew experience the UP Express and talk with Vanessa about the many options available with this mode of airport transportation:

A dedicated air/rail link is a unique form of airport transportation. Unlike public transportation, where there are a multitude of stops, the UP Express only takes 25 min. to get downtown from the airport (or vice versa). Travelers heading to the airport can take advantage of checking in, converting currency and relaxing in a rush free environment. Now that’s what we call the evolution of airport transportation.
