Toronto Transportation

When traveling into Toronto, flying into Toronto Pearson International Airport may be the best option. The airport is located within a very short drive of the city's CBD and is the busiest airport in Canada as it serves over 33 million passengers and 425 thousand flights each year. Over 30 different airlines operate flights out of the airport on a daily basis and direct flights are available to all major cities in Canada, the United States, as well as several locations in Europe and Asia.

Another option for getting into Toronto would be to take a train or bus. The city is located along several major train and bus lines, which can be used to connect directly to several major cities located in Canada and the US. For regional travelers and those coming from the suburbs, one of the best transportation options would be to take advantage of the GO Transit system. GO Transit serves over 200 thousands passengers every day and over 50 million each year. There are a total of seven different train and bus lines, which contain a total of 80 stops located throughout the Toronto area.

Once inside the city, the best option for getting around would be to take advantage of the expansive public transportation system operated by the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), which is the third busiest public transportation system in the world. One option operated by the TTC is the rapid transit subway system, which runs throughout the city. This train line is used by nearly one million passengers every day and has a total of four lines and over fifty stops located throughout the city.

Those areas that are not directly served by the subway could use the TTC's bus system. This bus system in Toronto has a total of over 150 bus routes and a fleet of over 2,000 buses that make over 1,000 different stops across the city. About 1.3 million people use the bus system on a daily basis.

The third popular public transportation option, which is also operated by the TTC, is the streetcar service. This service is very popular with both commuters and tourists, who like the site seeing options that it provides. There are a total of 11 different streetcar routes, which ridden by over 300,000 passengers on a daily basis. Most of the streetcars run through the more densely populated neighborhoods.
