|Cheaper Toronto Union Station - Pearson Airport Express fares start today |
The oft-derided Union Pearson Express might seem a little more appealing today. That's because the tickets for the train, which runs between Pearson Airport and Union Station, are now cheaper.
A one-way trip will cost you $12, or $9 if you have a Presto card. That's a huge decrease, considering tickets used to cost $27.50 and $19, respectively, when the UP Express launched back in June 2015.
Best of all, those looking to use the UPX as a commuter train - to get to one of the interim stops between Pearson and Weston Road, for instance - now have to pay less than $6 to hop on board.
The UPX hasn't really picked up steam since launching in June 2015 - at one point it was running at just 10 percent capacity. Hopefully, these friendlier fare prices will help.
