Presently, the only public access to the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport on Toronto Island from the Toronto mainland is via the Toronto Port Authority (TPA)-operated Toronto Island Ferry, with a traversing distance of only 122 m (400 ft).
The TPA, a Federal public authority, operates the 200-passenger ferry Marilyn Bell I and the 150-passenger David Hornell.
After three years of discussions, the Toronto City Council and the Toronto Port Authority (TPA) has reached a Master Agreement regarding TPA’s proposed pedestrian tunnel, directly across the Western Channel, between the Toronto mainland and the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport on Toronto Island.
The tunnel will not be built on or over City of Toronto land, meaning that City approval is not required.
The TPA also announced that:
An opinion poll (Ipsos Reid. “TPA: Tracking Study 2010” pdf) conducted on behalf of the TPA suggested that “a majority (56%) of Torontonians support a pedestrian tunnel to the island airport.”
