Air Rail Link renamed.

Among the many announcements this week by Metrolinx was an odd piece of news. The Blue22 Air Rail Link has been renamed the Union-Pearson Express. Yes, the U.P. Express. Say it out loud.

It is your humble correspondent’s opinion that the name “Union-Pearson Express” was a name conceived by the seven-year-old son of one of some unwitting GO Transit executive. Well played, little man. Well played. You’ve made millions of travellers from all around the world laugh out loud at us. I hope none of them gets arrested when they ask where they can catch a UP express.

  1. Exactly the sensitivity to language and consequence that you’d expect — and “express” means no stops, right? Is UP also “you pay”?

  2. Oh how original…Just call it “McGuinty’s gravy train”…it’s proof that the Weston stop will be temporary. Those Bay St executives will just complain “why are they stopping I thought it was express to Union!?”

  3. Since the Airport Rail Link belongs to everyone – it’s yours – and they have pretty well done whatever they liked, maybe the train should be called the U.P. Yours.
