Ontario Northland passenger reviews



November 9, 2023- Visiting family

Toronto to North Bay

Pros: I liked the comfortability and Wifi and it was very quiet on board another reason is it took me right where I need to be. Cons: Prices although it is understandable as a University student and it would be nicer to have prices a little cheaper but overall it was a great experience.



October 8, 2023- Visiting friends

Ottawa to Sudbury

Pros: The convenience and secure feeling of having a good driver helped me to feel very relaxed. Cons: Don’t know. Tips: Thank for your interest.



August 29, 2023- Business

Toronto to North Bay

I like nothing about this trip this was the bad trip of my life



August 24, 2023- Solo travel

Parry Sound to Toronto

Pros: I liked being part of a “well oiled” process. Very comprehensive care, and it felt comforting because of that. Cons: Can’t think of anything other than it would be nice if it went right to the airport, but maybe that’s not practical. Tips: Don’t wear loud fragrances or make loud noises. (This trip only included the fragrance part).



August 6, 2023- Solo travel

Toronto to Huntsville

Pros: I enjoyed this trip for several reasons: The driver was very pleasant, courteous and professional. I was quite impressed by him. Also, felt safe and able to relax. Didn't have to deal with traffic. AND (and this has nothing to do with the company) The young gentleman sitting next to me ended up to be in the same industry as the journey was extra pleasant because of that. Cons: I think more time options to travel to and from would be better. Tips: Sit midway to front. The back is where the rowdies are.
