[02:52.00]MAN:Hello, this is Land Transport Information at Toronto Airport.
[02:56.17]How may I help you?
[02:57.47]WOMAN:Oh, good morning.
[02:59.90]Um, I'm flying to Toronto Airport next week, and I need to get to a town called um, Milton.
[03:06.59]Could you tell me how I can get there?
[03:09.80]MAN:Milton, did you say?
[03:10.84]Let me see.
[03:12.30]I think that's about 150 miles southwest of here.
[03:16.70]In fact it’s 147 miles to be exact, so it'll take you at least -say, three to four hours by road.
[03:26.17]Is it as far as that?
[03:27.67]MAN:Yes, I’m afraid so.
[03:29.34]But you have a number of options to get you there and you can always rent a car right here at the airport, of course.
[03:36.18]Well, I don't really want to drive myself, so I’d like more information about public transport.
[03:43.43]In that case the quickest and most comfortable is a cab and of course there are always plenty available.
[03:50.96]But it’ll cost you.
[03:52.10]You can also take a Greyhound bus or there's an Airport Shuttle Service to Milton.
[03:57.40]WOMAN:Hmmm, I think for that kind of distance a cab would be way beyond my budget.
[04:02.31]But the bus sounds OK.
[04:04.33]Can you tell me how much that would cost?
[04:07.54]Let’s see, that would be SI 5 one way, or $27. 50 return...
[04:16.11]that s on the Greyhound.
[04:17.93]WOMAN:Oh, that's quite cheap - great!
[04:19.87]But whereabouts does it stop in Milton?
[04:23.80]MAN:It goes directly from the airport here to the City Centre and it’s pretty fast.
[04:28.38]But you have to bear in mind that there is only one departure a day, so it depends what time your flight gets in.
[04:34.95]WOMAN:Oh, of course.
[04:36.26]Hang on, we're due to get there at 11:30 am.
[04:40.30]MAN:Hmmm, too bad, the bus leaves at 3:45, so you would have quite a wait - more than 4 hours.
[04:47.89]WOMAN:Oh, I see.
[04:48.96]Well, what about the Shuttle you mentioned?
[04:52.15]MAN:OK.That's the Airport Shuttle that will take you from the airport right to your hotel or private address.
[04:59.66]It’s a door-to-door service and it would suit you much better, because there's one every two hours.
[05:05.50]WOMAN:So how much docs that cost?
[05:07.91]Yeah, that’s $35 one way, $65 return, so I guess ifs a bit more expensive than the Greyhound.
[05:16.83]WOMAN:Oh, that doesn't sound too bad, especially if it’ll take me straight to the hotel.
[05:21.72]MAN:But you do need to reserve a seat.
[05:23.99]WOMAN:OK, is it possible to make a booking right now?
[06:09.62]MAN:OK, I just have to fill this form out for you.
[06:14.65]So what date do you want to book this for?
[06:17.64]WOMAN:The 16th of October - oh, no, sorry, that's my departure date.
[06:23.21]I arrive on the 17th, so book it for then, please.
[06:26.82]MAN:So, that’s the Toronto Airport Shuttle to Milton.
[06:30.79]And this is for just one person or...?
[06:34.50]WOMAN:Yes, just me, please.
[06:35.76]MAN:Right.And you said your expected time of arrival was 11:30?
[06:40.43]So if I book your Shuttle for after 12:00 – let’s say, 12:30: that should give you plenty of time to, you know, collect your baggage, maybe grab a coffee?
[06:50.70]WOMAN:Yeah, that sounds fine, as long as we land on time!
[06:54.10]MAN:Well, we’ll take your flight details so you don’t need to worry too much about that.
[06:58.77]Now, what about the fare?
[07:01.66]What sort of ticket do you want？
[07:03.40]One way or...?
[07:04.22]WOMAN:Yes, that'll be fine, provided I can book the return trip once I’m there.
[07:08.53]MAN:No problem - just allow a couple of days in advance to make sure you get a seat.
[07:13.32]And what’s your name, please?
[07:15.60]WOMAN:Janet, Janet Thomson.
[07:17.91]MAN:Is that Thompson spelt with a ‘p’?
[07:20.47]WOMAN:No, it’s T-H-O-M-S-O-N.
[07:25.88]And you’ll becoming from the UK?
[07:28.41]What flight will you be travelling on?
[07:30.58]WOMAN:Oh, it’s Air Canada flight number AC936, from London Heathrow.
[07:38.65]Now, do you know where you’ll be staying?
[07:41.44]We need to give the driver an address.
[07:43.57]WOMAN:Yes, it’s called the Vacation Motel - and I think it’s near the town centre.
[07:49.13]Anyway, the address is 24, Kitchener Street – that’s KITCHENER Street.
[08:01.70]Right, so that’s $35 to pay please.
[08:04.83]Have you got your credit card number there?
[08:06.63]WOMAN:Yes, it’s a VISA card, and the number is 3303 8450 2045 6837.
[08:20.90]MAN:OK.Well, that seems to be everything.
[08:22.92]Have a good trip and we’ll see you in Toronto next week!
[08:26.27]WOMAN:Yes, bye - oh, thanks for your help!
