You can easily just punch in "pearson airport" to get a estimate of your trip. Note if you're going during busy hours it could be slightly more expensive.

My brother lives in YR and finds some of the airport car services to be cheaper (at times). You can find some of them here on rfd, if you do a search.

Note, i don't think uber picks up from the airport, so a little trick is to punch in your pick-up location as Alt Hotel (which is basically connected to the airport..just a short walk). You'd have to ask someone at the airport to direct you to the hotel, or follow the signs when you land back at yyz.

Standard Uber will be too small for a family of 4 - likely a compact car will pick you up.

You should call a Uber XL/Black car, but at those prices, you might as well get an Airport Limo.

in my case, SUV is big enough.
With UberX, there is no guarantee it will be a SUV, most are driving Carolla/Civic sized cars. It'll be a tight squeeze with luggage.

SUV sized cars are Uber XL and Uber Black/UberSUV, but it's much more expensive, at which point an Airport Limo is basically the same price. Airport Limos give a discount TO the airport because the rate is unregulated.
