Travel Information

BY LAND

Highways from all points in the United States and Canada join the Trans Canada Highway from New Brunswick into Nova Scotia.

Greyhound - With more than 3,100 service locations in North America, Greyhound offers a lot of choices in planning your next trip. To make it easier to choose which destination is right for you, we have compiled a province-by-province list of our available locations.

Types of Locations
Terminals and agencies provide the easiest access to frequent schedules and transfers to other bus schedules nationwide.

In major cities, our company-operated terminals provide full-service ticketing and courier service, with extensive hours of operation (many are open 24 hours). In smaller communities, locations may be operated by independent agents, which also provide schedule and courier service.

Bus stops provide limited schedule service for a large number of locations, which do not support a full-service terminal or agency. As a general rule, no ticketing, baggage, or courier service is offered at these locations. Some of these locations may be at a local airport or transit center, while others may simply be a stop along a highway route, without an enclosed waiting area.
Passengers should be aware that no Greyhound ticketing facilities are available at bus stop locations.

Locations Within United States
A list of locations served within the United States is available at http://www.greyhound.com/.

International Sales Agents
A number of independent travel agents worldwide sell the Greyhound North America Discovery Pass. These agents do not sell individual tickets. For a list of international agents, visit http://www.discoverypass.com/.

Acadian Lines

The bus is an excellent solution for making the most of your time! No need to book ahead, no need to show up hours ahead of time. And the schedule allows for tremendous flexibility: there are departures every day and even every hour for certain routes.

Moreover, our schedules make it easy to catch your connections.

And that's not all: with the bus, you help reduce the greenhouse gas effect. One fewer car on the road for each passenger on the Acadian bus… that counts for something!

Before Boarding
Where, when, how to buy tickets? And what about luggage? What if a child is travelling alone? This is all important information to know before climbing aboard one of our buses.

VIA Rail Canada

VIA operates up to 503 trains weekly on 12,500 kilometres of track, and serves 450 communities across the country, from coast to coast and north to Hudson Bay. VIA carried close to 4.2 million customers in 2007.

VIA’s fleet includes 396 passenger cars and 78 active locomotives. In addition to 159 railway stations, VIA operates four modern maintenance facilities, and employs some 3,000 people.
