Getting to Pearson

I gave up on Airways Transit years ago when it became cheaper to just call waterloo taxi to take me to the airport without having to share a ride with someone else.

To the airport Airways Transit is not such a good deal. They are cheaper for getting back from the airport, though.

It's the opposite: $90 TO Pearson, $115 return.

United Taxi is $89.99 TO, $120 return.

The taxi option is direct and I don't need to worry about other pick-ups/drop offs.

Of you can take GO for under $20. Smile

Yes, return is always more expensive since they need to pay a fee to GTA to wait for the passenger. Same with limo services, too.

And, yes, returning on Airways Transit is less expensive (if you are traveling solo) -- but you need to wait an indeterminate length of time for the shuttle. For two people Airways Transit costs about the same as a limo service, and clearly more than a taxi.

Yeah. I've done that. It's kind of slow. An intermediate option is to take GO to Square One or Bramalea and then a bus or taxi. The taxi is about $40+tip from Square One.
