Toronto Travel Guide

Getting Toronto

By Air

Toronto's primary airport is Lester B. Pearson International Airport (LBPIA), located just outside the city's borders in neighbouring Mississauga. It is the fourth-largest international airport in North America and is the world's largest originator of air traffic into the United States.

The city also has a smaller commercial airport, the Toronto City Centre Airport. Situated on the Toronto Islands, the City Centre Airport is primarily a short-haul airport, providing commercial flights to Ottawa and Montreal. It is connected to the mainland by a short ferry. The Hamilton International Airport is an alternate, relief airport to Pearson. Situated in Hamilton, 85 km (53 miles) west of Toronto, it is also a terminus for low-cost carrier, charter airline, and courier traffic.

By Bus

Forming part of Toronto's municipal expressway system, the Don Valley Parkway (or colloquially, the DVP) connects the city's eastern and northern suburbs to downtown, while the Gardiner Expressway (or colloquially, "the Gardiner") connects its western suburbs to the downtown core. Extending northward from the Don Valley Parkway is Highway 404, towards Markham, Richmond Hill, Aurora, and Newmarket. Extending westward from the Gardiner Expressway is the Queen Elizabeth Way (often called the QEW), which heads towards Hamilton, Niagara, and Buffalo, New York.

By Train

Toronto is served by intercity VIA Rail, Ontario Northland, and Amtrak trains through Union Station, a grand neoclassical structure in the heart of the city's downtown, which is shared with GO Transit's commuter trains.
