Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport Shuttle
The shuttle was initiated by Porter Airlines to provide greater connectivity between the airport and Downtown Toronto. Service was initially restricted to Porter Airlines customers and staff only, and operated from Station Street beside the Skywalk next to Union Station. Operations were moved to York Street beside the Royal York Hotel after Porter was evicted from the Skywalk.
After Air Canada began operating from Billy Bishop airport in 2011, the shuttle was renamed and opened to all passengers without requiring a ticket or employee ID. Loading was later relocated to Front Street West due to construction at Union Station. In April 2016, Tokmakjian Inc. began operating the service, taking over from Pacific Western which had operated the service since its inception.
