UP Express increases late-night service until 1 a.m.

The express train between Pearson Airport in Mississauga and Union Station in downtown Toronto is returning to late-night service.

Starting Jan. 7, passengers using the UP Express will be able to do so until 1 a.m. seven days a week, officials with Metrolinx said in a news release today.

Metrolinx is the provincial agency in charge of GO Transit and UP Express.

Currently, the last eastbound trip each day departs Pearson at 11:27 p.m. while the final westbound trip leaves Union Station at 11 p.m.

“Increased late-night service means customers will have more travel flexibility, seven days a week,” Metrolinx said in the news release. “At only 25 minutes, UP Express remains the quickest and most reliable way to get between downtown Toronto and Pearson Airport. ”

The Union Pearson Express connects the airport to Union Station in the heart of downtown Toronto, with trains running every 15 minutes.

It makes two brief stops along the way — at Weston and Bloor in Toronto.

The UP Express saw an increase in service as of April 2022 when two late-evening daily trips in each direction were added to the line.
