Getting Around: Driving
The convention centre's stretch of Steeles Avenue is also called Highway 15, and is broken into two distinct roads for traffic moving in each direction. The Pearson Convention Centre is on the western side of Steeles, where traffic moves southwest. To drive northeast, travellers can turn around at Torbram Road, the first major intersection.

As noted above, access to Highway 407 is just north of the Pearson Convention Centre, less than 5 minutes away by car. Travellers will want to note that Highway 407 is a toll highway.

Downtown Brampton is about 15 minutes away by car.

All of the hotels closest to the convention centre that are featured below are within a 15-minute drive, and most are less than 10 minutes away by car. For travellers who need taxi service, A-1 is a popular choice in Brampton.

Getting Around: Public Transit
There is a bus stop directly across from the Pearson Convention Centre, although it would be wise to use the Airport Road and Steeles intersection to cross to it, making it about a 6-minute walk away. There is also a bus stop on the same side of the street, about 1 to 2 minutes up Steeles towards Airport Road on foot.

However, despite the easy access to bus stops, public transit from the Pearson Convention Centre to the closest nearby hotels is not convenient in all cases, as the trips sometimes involve transfers or long travel times. Below, you will find public transit instructions only for those hotels that are located within an easy commute of the Pearson Convention Centre by bus.

Brampton's public transit system has been integrated with Google Maps to help travellers plan their trips. However, Brampton Transit also keeps up-to-date schedules and maps on its website, as well as offering its own trip planner. A one-way cash fare for an adult is $3.75, although various discounts are available and may be suitable for your needs.

Dining
Catering is offered for events, both corporate and social. Guests who will be attending an event at the convention centre should contact the event host or consult their invitation for information about the dining options that will be available at their specific event. Full-service bars are also available on site.

If you'd like to grab a quick coffee or a bite to eat in the area, there is a Tim Hortons at Steeles and Airport, about a 5-minute walk northeast of the convention centre. If you're driving to it from the convention centre, it will take about 5 minutes. However, if you're stopping at Tim Hortons on your way in, it will only take about 1 minute by car to reach the convention centre.

The next closest dining options in the area can be found on, and just southwest of, Torbram Road, which is about a 2-minute drive southwest along Steeles. Options include Mr. Sub and McDonalds.
