How to Travel to Ryerson University:
Public Transit

The cheapest method of travelling from the Toronto Pearson Airport is via our local subway system, called the TTC. It costs $3.25 per ride.

[Budget Tip: If you plan to ride the subway more than 3 times during your stay in Toronto, you may save money buy purchasing single-ride tokens, which can be purchased at any subway station.]

Directions:

1. Board the 192 Rocket.
Upon arriving at the international terminal at Toronto Pearson Airport, ask local airport staff to direct you to the 192 Rocket. This is a public bus that comes every 10-15 minutes. It costs $3.25 to board. Save your ticket, as you will need it again to transfer onto the subway.

2. Ride the 192 Rocket until you reach Kipling Subway Station.
After approximately 25 minutes, you will arrive at the subway station. Do not pay additional fares, as your ticket for the 192 allows for a transfer onto the subway.

3. Ride the GREEN “Bloor-Danforth Line” eastbound until you reach the Bloor-Danforth Subway Station.
After approximately 20 minutes, you will arrive at the transfer subway station.

4. Ride the YELLOW “Yonge-University-Spadina Line” southbound until you reach Dundas Station.
If you have luggage, there are elevators available at both of these stations to help you move between levels. After approximately 7 minutes, you will arrive at Dundas Station.

5. Get off the subway at Dundas Station.
You will likely exit the subway into a large shopping mall. Follow the crowd upwards until you reach the street level. You will be within 3 minutes’ walking distance of the conference location. If you need help, most passersby will be happy to point you toward Ryerson University from here.

 

Going Home:

Simply take these instructions in reverse. The 192 is an express bus between Kipling and the Pearson Airport, which runs throughout the day and night.

As you are leaving Toronto, please make sure to check your departures terminal on your flight itinerary prior to boarding the 192 bus. The driver will stop once each at all three terminals.
