The Greater Toronto Airports Authority operates a shuttle service for patrons around Toronto Pearson International Airport. The service was initially run by buses until the LINK train went into operation, although buses do still operate when the LINK train is not in service.

LINK Train

The LINK Train is an automated people mover which operates between Terminal 1, Terminal 3, and the Viscount parking lot. The LINK Train opened on July 6, 2006, largely replacing the inter-terminal shuttle bus.

Terminal Link by Pacific Western

From March 19 to October 31, 2013, the LINK Train was shut down for construction related to the Union Pearson Express, and to allow for the addition of a 7th car to the existing LINK Trains. Pacific Western Transportation was the contractor chosen to run the Terminal Link shuttle, and they leased ex-Orange County Transportation Authority D40LFs for the service.

Fleet operated by Coach Canada

In either 2008 or 2009, Coach Canada received the contract to operate the shuttle buses at the airport. This operation is considerably smaller as the LINK Train takes care of the majority of patrons and employees. It wasn't until the LINK Train closed from March to July 2009, that extra buses were needed. Therefore buses had to be leased from Eastway Refurbishing.
