Preparing for double the passengers
The Airport and surrounding commercial area is Canada’s second largest employment zone but currently has limited public transport connectivity and suffers from major congestion on local roads.
With passenger numbers forecast to grow from 47 to 85 million by 2037, major capital investment is required to deliver a more integrated transport infrastructure, supporting the Airport’s future expansion and facilitating a mode shift from private vehicles to public transport.
Doubling the airports capacity and providing multi modal connectivity will require the Airport to be restructured.
Creating an airport mega-hub
Transforming Toronto Pearson Airport into an airport mega hub, serving all of North America, will have broad economic benefits for regional growth and the Canadian economy as a whole.
The project will deliver improved surface access connectivity to safeguard the Airport’s future expansion including, High Speed Rail, LRT and BRT.
The vision includes plans for a new Regional Transit Centre and Terminal Processor and supporting commercial development on surrounding land.
The existing terminal processing facilities are being restructured to optimise the airport’s efficiency and passenger experience through integrated transportation and urban planning. The growth programme is being supported by new revenue streams born out of improved transport connectivity.
