Discounted train tickets, valued experience

When you travel by train, you can explore the wonders of Canada in an environmentally friendly, relaxing and safe way. The train often travels from downtown-to-downtown, so you arrive at destination, right in the heart of the city. And with our Discount Tuesday specials and other discount train tickets, you’ll love the way you travel.

On our long distance routes, admiring the scenery in an unhurried way is part of what makes travelling by train so special. The Great Western Way offers a dramatic route that wends its way across the landscape, through the prairies and the magnificent Rocky Mountains. The Maritime Way offers a means to discover the region’s unique culture, history and landscapes.

In autumn, try a ride from Quebec to Ontario and soak up the blaze of fall colours. Or embark on one of our adventure routes, like our ride from Jasper to Prince Rupert, and be enchanted by the spectacular Pacific Coast in British Columbia.

Taking the trains means you can enjoy a relaxing and rewarding travel experience, while avoiding the hassles of plane or car travel. Book your discounted train tickets now!
