A good start when traveling around Canada’s cities is to check out their public transit systems. Some smaller cities, like Fredericton and Charlottetown, pale in comparison to the quality and accessibility of the public transit system compared to Canada’s bigger centers such as Toronto and Montreal. Buses service every city. Trolleys, trains and subways systems are also available in the larger areas.
Vancouver (SkyTrain), Calgary (CTrain), Edmonton (LRT), Toronto (TTC), Ottawa (O-Train) and Montréal (metro) are all serviced by subway.
Fares generally range between CAD $2-$2.50 and can be purchased at the point of arrival. Day passes offering unlimited use are also available in places such as Toronto. Ask the operators for more details.
Avoid using public transportation during rush hour (7am-9am and 4pm-6pm). Trains, buses and trolleys get very congested, especially in the larger cities.
