VIDEO: A Closer Look - Union Pearson Express

TORONTO

The platform at Union Station that will welcome riders from Pearson International Airport has officially started construction.

A 25-minute train ride will take riders to and from downtown Toronto and the airport.

EllisDon has been awarded the $24-million contract for construction of the station in downtown.

The UP Express station is expected to be fully operational in summer 2015, just in time for the PanAm ParapanAm Games in Toronto.
