Travel options Pearson airport to Oakville

The GO/Via options for travelling from the international airport to Oakville seem to be very expensive and long winded. Is there a direct train or bus from the airport? We're staying at the Holiday Inn very close to the GO station in Oakville, which I booked thinking public transport would be an easy option.

Would it be easier better to just book a transfer with a taxi company? That seems to be about $50.

Am I just being unrealistic about how much travel costs are in Canada?

Taxis and Limos are permitted to use the high occupancy lane on the 403 so you won't be affected as much by rush hour.

Hi Senior1969;

Proper forum netiquette is not to change the topic of a thread, as it makes the replies to the original topic hard to follow. Also, the original poster may have opted to receive email notifications when replies are posted, telling them to check "their" topic for replies.

Please go back to this forum’s main page where you found this topic and click on the orange "Ask a question" button. You can then post your own question, and receive replies to it.

Best Regards

From gotransit.com/public/en/docs/Tariff_EN.pdf :

"6.3 - Senior Citizens need not be residents of Canada.

6.4 - Senior Citizens may be asked by a Proper Authority to show proof of age, and therefore must carry reasonable proof of age identification at all times while travelling on the GO Transit system in order for their ticket to be valid."

From Oakville GO station to Toronto Union Station, the senior's fare is $3.65 (or $7.30 for a "Day Pass", if you're going to be making a round-trip).

Getting from Pearson to the Oakville GO Station is actually quite easy but it will take double the time of a taxi- you leave the airport on the bus to the Square One GO Station and then transfer to a bus that will take you to the Oakville GO Station which is near the Holiday Inn on Argus Road

Hi 898andreh;

Rather than resurrect an old post (2013 & 2015), proper forum netiquette would be to post your question by starting your own topic so as not to confuse the replies to the original poster who sometimes has also opted to receive email notifications when replies are posted to "their" topic.

Best Regards
