Arriving at the Pearson International late at night

Hi

We're arriving at Pearson International around 10.30pm - 11.00pm on a Saturday night in mid May and I'm wondering will there be plenty of taxis around or the Pacific Western Airport Express bus for us to get to the Downtown area?

Thanks

I don' think there is such a thing as a "shortage of taxi's" at Pearson...there are scores of them there.

You may want to look at a limo instead of the cab. The ride downtown should be around $40 CDN. When you will exit customs follow the signs that indicates LIMO, about a 100 feet away. Have a great stay, need more info while you are here send me a private message.

<<"The ride downtown should be around $40 CDN."<<

FYI...the flat rate to the downtown core is $53 for taxis, $58 for limos.

I advise that the OP, who is my friend, is presently in the air on the way to Singapore to commence what is almost a three month trip and will probably not be able to follow this thread further.

Lots of cabs and limos. You could consider staying closer to the airport that night, either stay at Sheraton attached to Terminal3, or lots of free shuttles to hotels near airport. Just if you think you might be exhausted, although at that time the drive into Toronto would be faster than the next morning.

Has the limo rate come down in the last couple of years? We've used a limo on our previous visits and I had $70 in my head. Maybe that's what we paid including tip??

We've got an overnight stay arranged for the end of June and we'll use a limo again. With a $5 difference in price the limo is a no brainer!

Hi, Mikey0762;

The fares are based on zones. Have a look here:

www.torontopearson.com/en/toandfrom/taxilimo/

Downtown is $58, but if you're further from the airport the fare is higher.

Downtown, with tip, would be approaching $70
