Metrolinx is reducing the fares for its Union Pearson Express line, part of a strategy to attract more passengers.

(The Metrolinx board of directors are likely to approve the new fare structure during a special meeting this evening.)

Starting Wednesday, March 9, adult UP Express passengers using a PRESTO fare card can travel between Toronto Pearson International Airport and Union Station for just $9. If you don’t have a card, the fare is $12.

For passengers traveling between Weston or Bloor Stations and Union Station, UP Express fares will be the same as GO Transit fares, which means $4.71 for one stop and $5.02 for two stops, with a PRESTO card.
