Guide to Airport Transfers in Canada ✈️


Here at We Ride, we would like to offer a few options, tips and strategies to help our travelers navigate airport transfers in Canada. This guide aims to ensure a smooth and stress-free experience when traveling to and from Canadian airports.


Like the country itself, Canadian airports are diverse – from the small Arctic airports of the North to the massive and bustling Toronto Pearson International Airport. But simply getting to the airport is an undertaking all its own. If you want to avoid driving yourself on the highway and spending hard-earned cash at the long-term parking lots, there are a few options to try, such as taxis, ride-sharing services, airport shuttles, public transportation, and private transfer services.

Each have their own pros and cons, and while it does come down to personal preference, it is good to be as informed as possible on your choices.

Ride-Sharing and Taxis

Ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft, have greatly increased in popularity over past few years. Their mobile apps that link to a credit card make it easy to book. Safety is of utmost importance, thus ride-sharing services encourage verification of driver identity and offer other safety tips on their apps.

Public Transportation

Buses and trains are another option to get from your city to the airport, and they are often at a lower cost to the private options. Schedules are already made, so if you have a last-minute trip, this may be a great option. Although the space is shared with other travelers, public transportation is a budget-friendly and environmentally-conscious choice.

Airport Shuttle Services

For many years, airport shuttles, such as Airways Transit, have been a popular choice among travellers. Some consider it a midway point between private car transfers and public transportation. Although it still requires one to share a ride, pick up times are more customized and the number of people to share with is fewer. Shuttles do need to be booked in advance, so be sure to check the website or call ahead.

Private Car Transfers

We Ride is a private service dedicated to transportation from your door to your destination, whether that be the airport, office, event centre, or anywhere in between. Fully customized bookings can be done on the website, so no matter what time you need to be picked up, We Ride will get you there safely. Private car transfers have become an affordable option that ensures comfort and relaxation on the highway.


There are many options for getting to your destination, each with their own pros and cons. Choose the one that is best for you and your needs!
