Getting to St. Catharines

Toronto International Airport is probably the most direct with the airbus. It likely has more options as well.

 

Megabus is available from downtown Toronto. You would take the UP Express (Union-Pearson) train from Pearson International Airport to Union Station. It's about a 25 minute trip. This takes you to downtown St. Catharines. From there, there are buses and taxis to the university.
