The seamless arrival, boarding and the spacious and comfortable seat. Nice scenery and a very pleasant ride. The stations were very clean and inviting as well. I will definitely do the train again and ordering my tickets online ahead of time was easy.
Nothing I can think of.
I used Uber to get to the train station in Ottawa. It was very convenient. Forward facing seats are nicer in my opinion.
