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.
