Megabus has added a new daily bus trip connecting downtown Toronto and Hamilton's airport.

In a news release, the airport said Megabus will operate a daily service between downtown Toronto at the Toronto Coach Terminal and the John. C. Munro International Airport.

Travellers can buy their bus tickets online on the Megabus website starting from $21 one-way, or buy tickets while boarding the bus in Toronto or Hamilton.

"The Airport facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods throughout Canada, the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean and now Europe, so it's important that passengers are able to get to the Airport using their preferred mode for ground transportation," said airport President & CEO Cathie Puckering in a statement.

"With nearly 20 per cent of our customers originating from Toronto and its surrounding areas, these new services will be a great option for passengers wanting to take advantage of the affordable low-cost carriers that Hamilton International is home to."

The airport says it has also recently signed agreements with ridesharing companies Uber, Lyft and Facedrive, that will allow people to be picked up and dropped off curbside at the airport using those apps.

Customers are also still able to hail a cab from Blue Line Taxi and Hamilton cab, as well.
