  • Toronto TCC Subway System

    Toronto Transportation

    We were impressed with the 4 subway lines, 69 clean stations with attendants in booths and 42 miles of rails. There were maps everywhere that lit up the upcoming station. All platforms were clearly marked, it was very easy to figure out what train to get on, the direction and the stops. Fares were $3.25 with transfers available, and 2 for 1...

  • General travelling info in London

    London Transportation

    I will give you both our and our son's experiences. First, for a proper London area vacation you need a vehicle. Sure there is lots to do downtown - pubs, restaurants, churches, museums, parks and the like. For all these things, we walked from our downtown accommodations. But London is a sprawling city - so for many things you need wheels. Also,...

    Ottawa Transportation

    Having travelled from New York up to Montreal on the Amtrak Ariondak which was a less than spectacularly slow 10 hour service, our next stop was Ottawa. Our Montreal hotel was the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth, chosen by us as the railway station is a simple elevator ride down under the hotel. The trip to Ottawa was uneventful and quite speedy but was...

  • Crossing the Detroit River

    Windsor Transportation

    If you drive into Canada from the US you can either go over or under the Detroit River, I have gone over the Ambassador Bridge on previous trips and it is the more scenic of the two routes. You have to pay a toll, either in Canadian or US Currency (currently $4.75CDN or $4US, same as the tunnel), and pass through immigration/customs where they ask...

    Kingston Transportation

    We set out from Montreal at 9:40am in the morning on VIA Rail, arriving in Kingston a bit past noon. The train station is a few kms away from the downtown, so for a $2 fare, we took the #4 bus that passes across the street from the train station. Kingston Transit passes by the VIA Rail station on the half-hour up until about 7pm Mon-Sat (then...

    Ottawa Transportation

    February 2012 update: it appears that the YOW Shuttle Service ceased its operations at the Ottawa Airport in the summer of 2011. No other similar service has yet replaced it.

  • You can't do without a car in Canada

    Well, you can but it is not easy if you want to explore parts of the country that are a long way from any large cities. In our case, in 2007 I took up my new job in Regina, Saskatchewan so fast that we had to leave our 2004 Honda Accord behind in Fredericton, NB as Sue and I drove west through the USA in our older 1996 Chrysler. Once I was settled...

As an electronic toll route a photo of the license plate is taken when each car enters the 407 and then again at the exit. Based on that, a bill is sent to whomever the vehicle is registered to. (Those who travel the 407 frequently can...

    Many Ontarians take a short cut through the US when heading out to western Canada.

There is wonderful scenery and many provincial parks to camp at along the way.This photo was taken near Marathon.

  • Salt and sand for the roads

    In almost every village you'll find these strange buildings. They are for storage of sand and salt that is used in the winter months for the icy roads. There is a lot of snow in this area, so this is no luxery at all.
