You can find their desks in terminals one and three of Pearson Airport. You must make a reservation so that they expect you. Rate is approx. $72.00 one way. Please see their website for more information.
Please note that the shuttle service will insist on delivering you to the airport at the recommended time: 90 minutes before departure for flights within Canada and 2hr for flights to the US. Consequently, you might have to leave Waterloo well ahead of your departure time (3-4 hours, depending also on traffic on Highway 401).
