Tips For Staying Near Toronto Airport

Location
Lester B. Pearson International Airport is located about 22 km northwest of downtown Toronto. As Canada's busiest airport, it is spread out over 3 large terminals of which 2 are currently used. These very large terminal buildings each offer domestic and international flights, and travellers will need to know which terminal their airline uses. Travellers who find themselves at the wrong terminal will have to take the free Terminal Link Train which operates 24 hours each day and runs every 4 to 8 minutes to get to the right terminal.
more...
Getting Around: Public Transit
Visitors can travel between downtown Toronto and the airport with Union Pearson Express (UP Express) in about 25 minutes. Trains leave every 15 minutes and run from 5:30 am to 1 am.

It costs $12 one way for adults and $25 per family. Senior fares are about half the normal adult fare. 

Fares can be even less if travellers are being dropped off before Union Station, either at the Weston or Bloor stations. Be sure not to pay full fare if you are being dropped off at either the Weston Station or the Bloor Station.
more...
Getting Around: Driving
Travellers need to know which terminal their airline travels from to determine where to depart from. It takes at least 35 minutes to drive from downtown to the airport and travellers should allow for delays in traffic.
more...
Parking
Parking at the airport can be somewhat expensive at $3 every 20 minutes and daily maximums of $20 to $30, depending on the lot chosen.

The Value Park Lot located at 6135 Airport Road in Mississauga offers daily rates of $18. The Terminal Link Train will pick passengers up from this lot and take them to Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, in 4 to 8 minutes.

The Value Garage offers an 8-day rate of $14 per day.

Shopping
If you are looking to shop but don't have the time to make it to downtown Toronto, Square One Shopping Centre (1.6 million square feet, over 350 shops) is about 15 km south of the airport and about a 16-minute drive.

Sherway Gardens is slightly closer at 11 km or 9 minutes by car from the airport.
