Driving your car to and from Pearson

Accessible Parking

All of our parking garages are fully wheelchair accessible and provide a total of 301 designated accessible parking spots for use by accessible parking permit holders. 

Height Restriction

The maximum height for vehicles entering Daily Park is 2.4 metres (Terminal 1), and 2.0 metres (Terminal 3). For oversized parking, try our uncovered lots at Value Park Lot or Viscount Reserved Lot. These remote lots are connected to both Terminals 1 and 3 using the LINK train (fully accessible).

Being driven to and from Pearson

Curbside drop-off and pick-up areas

There are designated drop-off locations on the inner curb lanes at both terminals. These areas have more space for drop-off, a phone with Braille that can be used to request assistance, and tactile walking strips.

When you arrive at the airport, look for the accessibility signs and you will know you are in the right place.

At either terminal, you can also use the taxi and limo stands to travel from Pearson to somewhere in the greater Toronto area. When at the stand, ask a groundside officer to place a request for an accessible vehicle if needed.
