"Following significant demand from our passengers, we believe that a pilot of full ride sharing options is timely at Toronto Pearson, and in line with other airports across Canada and the USA already offering this service", Scott Collier, vice-president of Customer and Terminal Services for the GTAA, said in a written statement.

Over 200 North American airports, including Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton and Calgary offer their passengers full ride sharing services from Transportation Network Companies.

Pearson sees an average of 100,000 ride-sharing requests per month, the GTAA said.

In the past, you could take an Uber or Lyft to the airport.

The Toronto airport authority says it studied similar operations at other airports and consulted locally to understand benefits and impacts to operators.

As part of the pilot project, it will continue to monitor the impacts of this service on existing transportation providers and review their feedback. "We're thankful to the GTAA team for their collaboration and we look forward to providing a great rider and driver experience at Toronto Pearson".

In a news release issued Tuesday, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) said the pilot will provide a "regulated, municipally approved transportation option" for the 47 million annual airport passengers and close to 50,000 airport workers.

The area around Toronto Pearson is the second-largest employment zone in Canada; it facilitates more than 6 per cent of Ontario's GDP and directly employs 49,000 people.
