Walter, once again, has made up for my impetuousness -- I had completely forgotten about Norman Rogers airport (YGK). Apologies.
It's a bit expensive compared to ground transport ($350 from Pearson vs. $40 Megabus or $120 Greyhound; via Ottawa?) but certainly an option for those flying in from elsewhere.

As a student it was mostly VIA, the bus or the thumb. That said, I would be driving right by Toronto's Pearson Airport on my way down and could time passage to do a pickup (or two).
