The city of Toronto has a highly developed infrastructure which includes a modern system of roads and other transportation routs, communications, and constructions.
Toronto’s railways are literary gateways in all possible directions and considered the major rail hubs in entire North America. The center location of the city in the Québec City-Windsor corridor, which connects Ontario with Quebec, makes Toronto a very important center of all-Canadian rail transportation. Trains departing from Toronto offer speedy and comfortable travel to Ottawa, Montreal, Niagara Falls, Québec City, and other cities and towns inside this most densely populated part of the country. Toronto is also a crossing point for all railway routs that connect the eastern part of Canada with its western locations. Northern directions include railroads comfortably running to the Lake Superior and the neighbouring communities. Inside the city, high-speed rail links connect a busy Downtown union station, the heart of Toronto's city rail structure, with Lester B. Pearson International Airport and other important destinations.
Toronto is also one of the major centers of North American air transportation and the primary point for numerous connect air routs that unite smaller Canadian settlements with the rest of the world. Toronto's main airport, now called Lester B. Pearson International Airport in honour of the Canada's 14th Prime Minister, was first open in 1939 and has since expanded to the largest airport of the country and the most important air hub of Air Canada. With its two busy passenger terminals, it operates more than 400,000 aircraft movements and serves over 30 million passengers annually. By the beginning of 2007, a radical modernization of the Airport was completed, which cost $4.4 billion dollars and largely focused on the development and reconstruction of terminals, airsides, infields, utilities, and support facilities. Renovated Lester B. Pearson International Airport plans to carry about 50 million passengers by 2020.
Other important airports of Toronto that mostly serve the Greater Toronto Area include Toronto City Centre Airport, Toronto/Markham Airport, Oshawa Airport, Burlington Airpark, and many smaller ones.
The public road transportation system of Toronto is managed by the Toronto Transit Commission that runs an extensive system of subways, highways, bus routes, and other city roads covering the distance of more than 1,200 km.
