Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne took a trip on the Union Station-to-Pearson International Airport express train.

Travellers wanting to get from the airport to downtown can do the same starting June 6, the premier announced.”Today is a milestone,” said Wynne after her trip with Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca and Metrolinx president Bruce McCuaig.She said for decades the province has neglected infrastructure, but that ends with her government.

It marks Wynne’s second transit-related announcement in as many days. She said Tuesday that Ontario would spend $1.6 billion to build a new light rail line linking two Toronto-area cities, Brampton and Mississauga.The new airport trains have been undergoing testing for several months in preparation for a spring launch.

Metrolinx says the new train will ferry passengers between downtown Toronto and the airport in 25 minutes and will depart every 15 minutes during airport hours.

A one-way fare will cost $27.50 or $19 with the multi-transit system PRESTO card.
