Built in time for the 2015 Pan American Games, the Union Pearson (UP) Express is Toronto’s answer to a long-awaited rapid transit link, bridging Toronto Pearson International Airport (Terminal 1 Station) to downtown’s Union Station. Travellers from all around the GTA can leave their vehicles at home and enjoy a quick ride between the many stops linking up to numerous public transit services provided by GO Transit and the Toronto Transit Commission. An anticipated 1.2 million car trips will be eliminated from the transit link’s first year of operation alone, which translates into a sizable reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. With railway electrification looming in the near future, Aecon will be there to play another pivotal role in the construction of this much-needed express service.
