Does anyone know if there is another airport in the world that is a major hub for more than planes?
Heathrow hosts the largest coach and bus station in the UK.
It is the UK's busiest bus and coach station with over 1,600 services each day to over 1,000 destinations.[2]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heathrow_Central_bus_station

And it has been for at least a generation. I'll never forget my first flight back to the UK since leaving as a child, and marvelling at the departing and landing jets from adjacent to my bus platform....

The more I search, the more I realize that there's a litany of them...

Hong Kong has buses and a busy ferry terminal.
Intermodal transportation hub[edit]
To sustain the growth of passengers, the Airport Authority formulated a "push and pull through" strategy to expand its connections to new sources of passengers and cargo. This means adapting the network to the rapidly growing markets in China and in particular to the Pearl River Delta region (PRD). In 2003, a new Airport-Mainland Coach Station opened. The coach station has a 230-square-metre (2,500 sq ft) waiting lounge and sheltered bays for ten coaches. Many buses operate each day to transport passengers between HKIA and major cities in the Mainland.[124]

The Coach Station was relocated to the ground floor (level 3) of Terminal 2 in 2007. The 36 bays at the new Coach Station allow cross-border coaches to make 320 trips a day carrying passengers between the airport and 90 cities and towns in the PRD. Local tour and hotel coaches also operate from T2. The coach station at T2 has shops and waiting lounges as well as a mainland coach service centre which gathers all operators together.[125]

In late September 2003, the SkyPier high-speed ferry terminal opened. Passengers arriving at the SkyPier board buses to the terminal and arriving air passengers board ferries at the pier for their ride back to the PRD. Passengers travelling both directions can bypass custom and immigration formalities, which reduces transit time. Four ports – Shekou, Shenzhen, Macau and Humen (Dongguan) – were initially served. As of August 2007, SkyPier serves Shenzhen's Shekou and Fuyong, Dongguan's Humen, Macau, Zhongshan and Zhuhai. Passengers travelling from Shekou and Macau can complete airline check-in procedures with participating airlines before boarding the ferries and go straight to the boarding gate for the flight at HKIA.

In 2009, the permanent SkyPier Terminal opened.[citation needed] The permanent ferry terminal is equipped with four berths, but the terminal is designed to accommodate eight berths. Transfer desks and baggage handling facilities are included, and the terminal is directly connected to the airport automatic people mover system.

[GO Buses Serving Toronto Pearson International Airport
The Route 40 - Pearson Airport Express is an express bus which travels between Hamilton GO Centre, Oakville Carpool Lot at Trafalgar/ Hwy 407, Square One, Pearson Airport and Richmond Hill Centre Terminal (Hwy. 7 & Yonge). It stops at Terminal One at the ground level.
This bus runs hourly on weekdays and weekends, and every 30 minutes during weekday rush hours. The trip from Hamilton to Pearson Airport is around one hour, from Oakville it's around 30 minutes and from Mississauga the trip is around 15 minutes.]

When are UPX going to honour an open ticket transfer from this bus to the UPX at the airport as stated and required by the Metrolinx Bylaw B? (Fare Annex)
GO does this if travelling all the way down to Union and then all the way back to Weston on UPX. But not from the airport end.
How ludicrous does it have to become? Or stated otherwise, how ludicrous do I have to make a court case based on this absurdity for Metrolinx to correct it?

This may have flown under the radar - but per minutes of the first meeting of the new Toronto City Council, the city's representative on the GTAA Consultative Committee is.....

Councillor Jim Karygiannis

There are supposed to be two Councillors appointed, but no one else was was willing/available.

- Paul
