Toronto Travel Tips: What's New at Pearson? The UP Train is Awesome and the Doctor is In

Toronto Travel Tips
What's New at Pearson?

If you're traveling in and out of Pearson this summer, there's been some changes you'll want to check out.

UP Train
@UPExpress
Getting to and from the airport isn't usually on anyone's list of fun things to do. It's an ordeal rather than one of the things you look forward to when you're taking a trip.

The people at UP are looking to change your mind with a sleek, stylish train and upscale amenities that can will set your trip off on a high note. It's clean, ultra modern and efficient; there are lots of reasons to love UP.

  • The trains run every 15 minutes between Uniotn Station and Pearson from 5:30am to 1:00am every day
  • The trip only takes 25 minutes
  • The one-way fare is only $9 with Presto, $12 without, $6 for seniors and free for kids 12 and under

Hot Tip
While you're waiting, check out the CIBC lounge - just follow the signs and arrows to the upper level lounge, an oasis of casual yet stylish dining and imbibing. It's a chic and relaxing way to begin your trip.



Pharmacy & Doctor In The House
Skyhealth at Pearson
Medical clinic hours: 8am-10pm daily
Pharmacy hours: 6am-10pm daily

Nobody likes to think about getting ill while you're on vacation or on the road, but anything can happen and it usually does.

Skyhealth is located at Pearson Terminal 1, open 7 days a week to offer medical clinic and pharmacy services to travelers and frequent flyers, including prescription transfers and refills.
You'll find a state of the art clinic with high tech amenities and a European style full service pharmacy. You can get travel vaccinations and see a doctor without an appointment.



In addition, Skyhealth kiosks are located throughout the airport terminals to offer basic pharmacy products like aspirin and bandaids.

I can remember taking a trip with the fam in the late 1990s in old Terminal 1... hotter than hell with no air conditioning and it felt like a rabbit warren. We've come a long way, baby.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
