Getting to TrentAging2019:


Air: Peterborough is located 125 km (78 miles) from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) with international and national service from major airlines. It is approximately 150 km (93 miles) from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ) with regional service from Porter Airlines. Airport shuttle and rental car service to Peterborough is available at both airports.


Airport shuttle: An airport shuttle is available from Century Transportation.


Car: Peterborough is approximately 1.5 hours drive from Toronto, located on Highway 115, north of Highway 401.


Car rental is one of the least expensive and most direct options to get to Trent University. There will be plenty of parking available to conference delegates at Trent in late May and parking fees are included in your conference ticket. However, please be aware that Highway 407 (an alternate route to Highway 401) is a toll highway. Depending upon your time of arrival and traffic volume, this may be a desirable route, however we strongly suggest you consult with your car rental agency about their policy regarding toll highways when you pick up your vehicle.
