· There’s a fast and reasonable public rail service called the Canada line, which runs from the International and Domestic Terminals right into the centre of the city. The fare is 9CAD ($9), though be aware this service stops late at night and is replaced by a bus service. If you’d like to organise your transport in advance, you can always book an airport transfer with Skyscanner.
