Transportation from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ)
Located on the Toronto Islands, the Billy Bishop airport receives flights from both Porter Airlines, and Air Canada. After crossing over to mainland Toronto on the ferry, there are multiple methods of transport available to travellers. The Porter shuttle departs roughly every fifteen minutes travelling to the west entrance of The Fairmont Royal York Hotel. It stops at the north-east corner of Front and York streets, just across from Union Station, where the TTC is easily accessible. Taxi’s are also readily available upon departure from the ferry.
Getting Around the City
“Riding the Rocket” is a fast, easy and affordable way to get around the city, but the combination of subways, streetcars and buses can be overwhelming for first time users. Using the TTC Trip Planner is a good place to start, and when using Google maps there is the option of plotting the trip by public transportation. Cash fare is $3.00, however riders can also purchase 3 tokens for $7.80, or 7 for $18.20. Weekly passes and day passes can also be purchased to suit riders’ levels of usage.
