Public Transit Systems
Many Canadian cities have clean and efficient public transit systems that make it easy and exciting to explore cities on a flexible schedule.
Buses account for most of the fleets, but there are also streetcars, trolleys, sea buses, and trains. Major Canadian cities that offer subway, metro or light rapid transit service include Vancouver (SkyTrain), Calgary (CTrain), Edmonton (LRT), Toronto (subway), Ottawa (O-Train) and Montréal (metro).
One-way fares average around CAD$2-$2.75 per adult and can be purchased from subway/metro stations and some convenience stores. Cash fares can usually be substituted for transit tickets. Some cities also offer flexible transit passes so you can enjoy unlimited all-day, multi-day, or monthly travel.
