Pros: No transfers, Reached 15 min before time. Included a good loo break. Safe bus station locations. Helpful staff. No crowding inside bus. Cons: Seating was good for a bus, but could be improved. Schedules of bus could be improved. Now there aren't any bus that reached Toronto from Sudbury between 12:30pm and 7pm. Not sure if there was WiFi on board, the staff did not mention any. If not, could add on.

Ontario Northland Bus Guide & FAQs

Do Ontario Northland buses have WiFi?

Yes, Ontario Northland offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with Ontario Northland will have WiFi as advertised, some buses might not come equipped with WiFi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. Ontario Northland WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

Are there power points or USB points on the bus?

Yes, there are power points onboard Ontario Northland buses. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbour might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power points, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a power point USB converter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.

Since Ontario Northland might sometimes use replacement bus vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.
