The major airport in the Toronto area is Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ). It is located just west of the city and is the area’s largest airport and has the most flights, especially for international travelers. Most major U.S. airlines service Pearson International and typical return fares to Toronto from major U.S. cities range from $350-$700 depending on time of year and how far in advance the ticket is booked.
Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ) has limited service to select US and Canadian cities. It is located in the heart of the city and is a very short walk to a street car that links to Toronto’s subway system.
Toronto is served by the Via Rail System, the network that provides all rail service throughout Canada (with connections to the Amtrak system through Niagara Falls, New York). Union Station is located on Front Street, between Bay and University. The station is right on Toronto’s subway line.
