New Bus Service to Pearson Airport for Burlington
GO Bus Route 40 Will Provide Direct Bus Link to Airport from Dundas and Hwy. 407
December 13, 2019
Burlington–Today, MPP Jane McKenna, Burlington, and MPP Effie Triantafilopoulos, Oakville North-Burlington, announced that Ontario is adding a new stop on the GO bus service between Hamilton and Pearson International Airport to offer people in the Burlington area a new direct transit link to Pearson Airport.
“Our government is focused on improving transit options for the people of Burlington,” said MPP McKenna. “This new GO bus service at Dundas and the 407 will make it easier to get to Pearson and connect with other transit hubs from Burlington. It will also help alleviate traffic gridlock and reduce carbon emissions. This is fantastic news for our community.”
Starting January 11, 2020, GO Transit’s Route 40 bus will stop at the Highway 407 park-and-ride lot at Dundas Street. Route 40 offers 24-hour bus service between Hamilton GO Centre, Pearson International Airport’s Terminal 1, and Richmond Hill Centre, seven days a week. The new Route 40 stop at Dundas/Hwy. 407 will give people living in the Burlington area a new transit option for travel between Burlington and Square One Mall, Pearson Airport, and Richmond Hill.
Ministry of Transportation park-and-ride lots, such as the lot at Hwy. 407 and Dundas Street permit overnight parking for 120 consecutive hours. Adding a stop to GO bus Route 40 at this location gives people in the Burlington area the option to park, ride the bus, and fly for up to five days without the expense of airport parking.
“We’re getting Ontario moving again everywhere in the province, including right here in Burlington,” said MPP Triantafilopoulos. “Expanding Route 40 service to include Burlington means a new, lower-cost option for people to get where they need to be, whether they need to catch a flight at Pearson, or get to major transit hubs in Mississauga, Vaughan or Richmond Hill.”
- GO bus Route 40 runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, stopping at Hamilton GO Centre, Trafalgar Road/Hwy. 407, Square One, Dixie Transitway Station, Renforth Transitway Station, Pearson International Airport’s Terminal 1, Hwy. 407 Bus Terminal, and Richmond Hill Centre.
- GO bus Route 40 service connects with HSR, MiWay, Brampton Transit, YRT and York Viva, and TTC Line 1 subway service.
