Part A :
Hello, this is Land Transport information at Toronto Airport.
How may I help you?
Oh, good morning, I'm flying to Toronto Airport next week, and I need to get to a town called um, Milton.
Could you tell me how I can get there?
Milton, did you say?
Let me see. I think that's about 150 miles south-west of here.
In fact it's 147 miles to be exact, so it'll take you at least -say, three to four hours by road.
Wow! Is it as far as that?
Yes, I'm afraid so.
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.
Right. Well, I don't really want to drive myself, so I'd like more information about public transport.
Ok. In that case the quickest and most comfortable is a cab and of course there are always plenty available.
But it'll cost you.
You can also take a greyhound bus or there's an airport shuttle Service to Milton.
Hum, I think for that kind of distance a cab would be way beyond my budget.
But the bus sounds OK.
Can you tell me how much that would cost?
Sure. Let's see. That would be $15 one way,or $27.50 return.
That's on the Greyhound.
Oh, that's quite cheap-great! But where abouts does it stop in Milton?
It goes directly from the airport here to the City Centre and it's pretty fast.
But you have to bear in mind that there is only one departure a day, so it depends what time your flight gets in.
Hang on, we're due to get there at 11:30 am.
Hmmm, too bad, the bus leaves at 3:45, so you would have quite a wait - more than 4 hours.
Oh, I see.
Well, what about the Shuttle you mentioned?
OK. That's the Airport Shuttle that will take you from the airport right to your hotel or private address.
It's a door-to-door service and it would suit you much better, because there's one every two hours.
So how much does that cost?
Yeah, that's $35 one way, $65 return, so I guess it's a bit more expensive than the Greyhound.
Oh, that doesn't sound too bad, especially if it'll take me straight to the hotel.
But you do need to reserve a seat.
OK. Is it possible to make a booking right now,through you?
Part B :
OK. I just have to fill this form out for you.
So what date do you want to book this for?
The 16th of October - oh, no, sorry, that's my departure date.
I arrive on the 17th, so book it for then, please.
So, that's the Toronto Airport Shuttle to Milton.
And this is for just one person or...?
Yes, just me, please.
Right. And you said your expected time of arrival was 11:30?
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?
Yeah, that sounds fine, as long as we land on time!
Well, we'll take your flight details so you don't need to worry too much about that.
Now, what about the fare? What sort of ticket do you want? One way or?
Yes.that'll be fine, provided I can book the return trip once I'm there.
No problem - just allow a couple of days in advance to make sure you get a seat.
And what's your name, please?
Janet, Janet Thomson.
ls that Thompson spelt with a "p"?
No, it's T-H-O-M-S-O-N.
OK, and you'll be coming from the UK?
What flight will you be travelling on?
Oh, it's Air Canada flight number AC936, from London Heathrow.
Now, do you know where you'll be staying?
We need to give the driver an address.
Yes, it's called the Vacation Motel-and I think it's near the town centre.
Anyway, the address is 24 Kitchener Street- that's k-i-t-c-h-e-n-e-r street.
That's fine. Right.
So that's $35 to pay please. Have you got your credit card number there?
Yes, it's a VISA card, and the number is 3303 8450 2045 6837.
是的，这是一张签证卡，而且号码是8450 20456837 3303。
OK, well, that seems to be everything.
Have a good trip and we'll see you in Toronto next week.
Yes, bye-oh, thanks for your help!
