Canada is a huge country based along the northern border of the United States, consisting of 10 provinces. Traveling through the whole country of Canada will require an extended stay, or just multiple trips to this beautiful country. During your visit, you can get to one location to another in a variety of different ways. Canadian transportation systems are similar to the United States. Canada offers planes, trains, buses, cars, and even taxis to help get you from place to play in Canada.
Traveling through Canada by plane is probably the best option if you are going from one province to the other, and if the ground transportation route is just too long. While you can take a plane to places that are not that far apart, it may be more economical for you to stick to plane travel when it comes to extended distances.
Buses and taxis are very prominent in the bigger cities of Canada. If you are in the city, you are more likely to grab a taxi than you are a bus. The busses in Canada are very comfortable for transportation, and can even be provided from family owned companies. Often times the buses are used for tours across various parts of Canada. This is similar to a sight-seeing tour, and it allows you to explore the area for a little bit as well.
Transportation by car is always an option, and most American citizens travel to Canada by car (and vice versa!). Even if you fly to Canada, you can still rent a car from well-known established car rental companies, like Hertz. However, they require drivers to be the age of 25 before they can rent a car, and it is important to brush up on your Canadian traffic rules before arriving.
The traffic rules in Canada is a little bit different than other nations, but with similar concepts. Simply by doing research on your Canadian province, you should be able to come across a small section of road rules to help you on your journey.
One of the best ways to see the beautiful country of Canada is to travel by train. The railway systems in Canada flow with the beautiful Canadian landscape, offering continuous gorgeous views for train passengers. If you intend to travel Canada by train, make sure you look up the train schedule first. There are limited departures for trains, and it is important for you to plan ahead!
Before determining what form of transportation you will be taking in Canada, do your research first. Early bookings (for flights and trains) are ideal for anyone looking to vacation in Canada. If you plan to rent a car, familiarize yourself with the road rules of the province or city you will be visiting. If you plan to take a bus tour, try to plan as far ahead as possible to book your seats. If you are traveling by taxi, just remember to tip your drive. Canada offers so much for locals and tourists across the world, and with multiple forms of transportation, each visitor will be satisfied!
