Traveling on the TTC is quick and reliable. One-way fare (transfer permitted) is $3.25 cash. Buses and streetcars will only take exact change, so be ready with the proper coins. You may also purchase and use tokens (1 token is the equivalent of the $3.25 fare), available at subway stations and various other convenience stores such as Shopper’s Drug Mart. Day passes are also available. Be sure to always accept a transfer (even if not transferring) as Proof-of-Payment in the event TTC officials do a ticket check. Check out the Subway Map

The airport shuttle will take you to the west entrance of the Fairmont Hotel at the corner of York St. and Front St. in downtown Toronto. From here you can catch a taxi or proceed to the subway. The west entrance of the Fairmont leads directly to a short pathway that connects directly to Union subway station.
