Ride Sharing Pilot Begins At Toronto Pearson

Published on : Friday, June 15, 2018

Toronto PearsonThe Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) announced today a pilot project for ride sharing companies to pick up and drop off passengers at Toronto Pearson. Starting today, passengers with Uber and Lyft rideshare apps on their smartphones can request UberX and Lyft rides from Canada’s largest airport. This ride sharing pilot provides another regulated, municipally approved transportation option for 47 million annual airport passengers and more than 49,000 workers at Toronto Pearson.

 

 

Over 200 North American airports, including Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton and Calgary offer their passengers full ride sharing services from Transportation Network Companies. Toronto Pearson sees an average of 100,000 ride sharing requests per month, bolstered by the popularity of supporting services in adjacent communities like Toronto, Mississauga and Oakville.

 

 

“Following significant demand from our passengers, we believe that a pilot of full ride sharing options is timely at Toronto Pearson, and in line with other airports across Canada and the U.S already offering this service,” said Scott Collier, Vice President, Customer and Terminal Services, GTAA. “We appreciate the collaboration of the ground transportation industry in sharing their feedback and welcome another opportunity to offer our passengers choice in their transportation options.”

 

 

To prepare for the launch of this pilot project, the GTAA studied best practices at other North American airports and consulted regularly with transportation industry partners to understand the benefits to passengers and impacts to operators.

 

 

As part of the pilot project, the airport will continue to monitor the impacts of this service on existing transportation providers and review their feedback.
