It's not a particularly spectacular journey but it is a comfortable one with wide seats, plenty of legroom and an onboard diner. If you are flexible with travel times it might be worth leaving your booking until close to the date and then check out whether there's any last-minute offers on Via Rail's website (

Ottawa's railway station is a little bit out of downtown: OCTranspo buses, 94,95, 101 and 102 with about a 15 to 20 minute ride.

The train ride is reasonably fast and comfortable. My daughter does the trip about 6 times a year (we live in Ottawa and she goes to U of T). As John says, comfortable, reasonably fast but not too exciting.

If you are staying downtown, you should be able to see the Changing of the Guard and wander around a bit - Parliament Buildings, Rideau Canal, Sparks St, etc.

Forgot to mention, you need to book at least a week before the trip to get discounted prices.

I did that last summer. It's a pretty comfortable ride but, yeah, not terribly scenic, so no need for a window seat, really.
Tips? Get something to eat before boarding the train and before going into the train station in Toronto.
The bus to Downtown Ottawa is fairly easy to find. There are signs in the train station that lead you over a bridge to the city's busway. It takes about 15 minutes, IIRC. Make sure you have correct change before you board though: $3.25.

Travel Tips for Ottawa

Tourist Information - "Infocentre"

by yooperprof

The tourist "Infocentre" is a good place to begin - or end - your search for travel information in Ottawa. Helpful clerks - fluent in English and French - provide assistance for Ottawa's many attractions - and they can also help you with bus schedules! (They did me!)

Lodging assistance is also provided.

90 Wellington Street, across from Parliament Hill.

The Beauty and Architecture

by Lisser

Ottawa is one of four capitals (with London, Johannesburg and Budapest) that are neo-Gothic in style and spirit. The complex, picturesque quality of Gothic design distinguishes these from neo-classical Rome, Paris and Washington, which are characterized by a spirit of monumental grandeur.

Ottawa is really underrated. ...

by Annabella

Ottawa is really underrated. It's a beautiful city, and relatively quiet. The market/restaurant part of downtown has many good shops and restaurants. In the summer there are many activities around the river area and the art museum, houses of parliament, etc. It's also very affordable.

Calling cards

by janika

Here is a tip how you can contact your family and friend overseas and anywhere abroad.
You can purchase these long distance calling cards in almost any stores. These card will allow you to talk many minutes for a small amount of money.

As you know in Canada local calls are free. You still have to pay a quarter (25-cents) for a local call. Instead of pouring dollars into the public phone, just use a quarter and one of these cards to make long distance calls to anywhere on the World.
. These cards come in $5-, $10- $20- and $50-format. For this $5- card I can talk almost three hours to overseas and over three hours here in North America to a distant city. There is a code at the back of the card you have to scratch off and call a local number (This local number is listed at the back)
Once you got it, an automated voice will ask you for the code which you've scratched off earlier of course. After this, the automated voice will tell you how much money you still have left on the card and it will prompt you for the destination number to dial. The number gets dialed automatically and voila. You're talking.

Many locals use these cards as the local telephone company (Bell Canada) is quiet expensive on long distance. These cards work anywhere in the country and if you don't find the local number on the back, there is always the toll free, 800 or 866 number to dial,

So the steps once again:
#1 Dial the local or the 800 number listed at the back.
#2: Enter the code,
#3: Dial the destination number.

The automated voice also speaks English, Hindi, French, Cantonese, mandarin, Spanish, Vietnamese, Korean & Japanese.

Chateau Laurier Hotel (1912)

by yooperprof

This prominent Ottawa landmark isn't just a hotel, it's an icon. The "Chateau's" design was a direct inspiration for the Canadian pavilion at Disney's EPCOT in Orlando.

The Chateau Laurier would be one of the great railway hotels of the world - except for the fact that the railway is gone. (The train station is now a government-owned conference center.) However, it's true that the hotel and the train station were built simulaneously - and with the designs and oversight of the same firm, Ross & Macdonald.
