Reconfigured Passenger and Vehicle Traffic Operations at Billy Bishop Airport to Begin Trial Period on December 15

Toronto (December 13, 2018) –  As part of our commitment to continually improve efficiency at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, a newly reconfigured approach to passenger and vehicle traffic operations, designed to improve traffic flow in Eireann Quay, will begin a trial period on December 15, 2018.

In alignment with changing traffic patterns at the airport, the reconfiguration will consolidate passenger pick-up locations within a streamlined and optimized arrivals curb. Passengers will be guided by signage in the airport pavilion and new colour-coded pavement markings indicating pedestrian routes to public transportation, taxi corral or passenger pickup. Signage throughout the traffic circle and Eireann Quay will connect transportation partners, including ride-share operators, with arriving passengers.
In the spring, the impact and efficacy of the reconfiguration will be evaluated to assess improvements and potential full-time adoption. Feedback from the public and passengers will be an important factor in the decision to permanently implement this project and interested parties are encouraged to submit feedback directly to PortsToronto, owner and operator of Billy Bishop Airport, at
The reconfiguration of passenger and vehicle traffic operations at Billy Bishop Airport is part of the City of Toronto’s Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood Plan that will address access issues in the vicinity of the airport and improve the public realm for the enjoyment of both the community and travellers.
