2 October 2022- Visiting family

Ontario Northland

Pros: The driver was very friendly and courteous but also professional and considerate of all passengers. He was also an excellent driver and did not take any risks. Cons: It would be nice to have the trips from via rail coordinated with the bus routes to some extent. I had to stay overnight in Ottawa as I missed my bus to Pembroke by 15 minutes post arrival from Toronto via Via Rail. I was also unable to access the WiFi on the bus. Better signage for the Bus service and possible update on timing of the bus. Tips: Make sure you download your ticket in case you are unable to access your email during travels.

City Information


If big cities such as Toronto or Montreal appear too crowded for your taste, consider Ottawa for a change. Boasting a small-town vibe with a vibrant art scene, the city will appeal to all kinds of travelers. Ottawa’s star attraction is the Rideau Canal, which meanders its way through the city center. In the summer months, the canal is full of boats and cyclists who wander about, and in the colder months of the year, it becomes the largest ice skating rink in the world. If you are a fan of architecture, don’t miss out on Parliament Hill, which features three amazing neo-Gothic structures. For those who seek to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, Gatineau Park, located just 15 minutes from Downtown, offers the reprieve you need.

Ottawa features a very diverse food scene that caters to everyone’s needs. If you just can’t get enough of French delicacies, head to Signatures Restaurant, which is housed in a Tudor Revival-style mansion. If you want to try out Canadian signatures, try Atelier instead.

The main intercity train station in town is Ottawa Station, which is served by VIA Rail. The city’s air services are handled by the Ottawa Macdonald–Cartier International Airport, which is located 5.5 miles south of the city’s downtown.
