Kitchener-Waterloo ---->> Toronto Airport

Kitchener-Waterloo ---->> Toronto Airport

I was just wondering if anyone ever gets the Go-transit to Toronto and then jumps of at the Malton station which is right next to the airport and then just walks. Google maps says 44min walk from Malton station to the Airport Terminal 3. It seems one of the most direct ways to get to the airport from Kitchener. Aside from getting a shuttle bus or taxi. Cheapest too.

I am sure someone has done this but I just wanted to get some adivce about it.

It also seems like the Go-transit only has trips to Kitchener --> toronto really early in the morning.

Maybe this schedule is wrong?!

Hi Glendon199;

The Malton GO Station is NOT "right next to the airport". 44 minutes would be a pretty good estimate. Carrying or pulling tag-a-long luggage will probably add to that.

Best Regards

You could bring the number for Mississauga taxi companies and call a taxi to meet you at Malton GO station. It'd be a quick and cheap ride from there to the airport.

However, the Kitchener GO schedule is not a mistake -- service is really only offered for commuters heading into Toronto for work.

Airways Transit would be a more practical choice, but more expensive.

Train service is only offered for the morning rush....I doubt the bus service would stop at Malton from Kitchener...

There is no GO bus service from Kitchener. The GO buses don't go further than Guelph.

There is however GO bus service from Waterloo, starting at the university and travelling to an endpoint of Milton GO station, where one can connect to the train, or travelling to Square One terminal, depending on the time of day.

Thanks guys,

I was thinking about getting the train not the bus. But yeh thanks for the advice.

Unfortunate about the train schedule.

I am from Scotland but learned after the first few days of being here that nothing is "right next to" anything in Canada, haha. So yeh a 45-60 min walk isn't too bad.

Thanks mattInTO, good advice, exactly the information I was looking for.

For an early flight this option seems pretty fast.
