Introduction
■ Transportation in Canada, the world's second-largest country in total area, is
dedicated to having an efficient, high-capacity multimodal transport systems.
■ Transport in Canada is under the direction of the federal
government's Minister of Transport. The Transportation Safety Board of
Canada is responsible for maintaining transportation safety in Canada by

TYPES OF TRANSPORT SYSTEMS
■ Air
■ Rail
■ Bus
■ Ferry
■ Car
■ Taxis
■ Walking and cycling
Roads
■ The safety of Canada's roads is moderately good by international standards,
and is improving both in terms of accidents per head of population and per
billion vehicle kilometers.
■ Roads and highways were managed by provincial and municipal authorities
■ Street legal or road going refers to a vehicle such as
an automobile, motorcycle, or light truck that is equipped and licensed for use
on public roads, being therefore roadworthy.
■ Cars from other countries (such as the UK) typically do not qualify, as
standards are too widely divergent from those in Canada
Air transport
■ Of the airports only 13 are designated as international airports by Transport
Canada.
■ Canada's largest air carrier and its flag carrier is Air Canada.
■ The Canadian Transportation Agency employs transportation enforcement
officers to maintain aircraft safety standards, and conduct periodic aircraft
inspections, of all air carriers.
RAIL
■ The Canadian National and Canadian pacific railway are Canada's two major
freight railway companies, each having operations throughout North America.
■ Canada has railway links with the lower 48 US States, but no connection with
Alaska other than a train ferry service from Prince Rupert ,British Columbia.
■ There are no other international rail connections.
■ The Canadian Pacific Railway is a historic Canadian Class 1
railway incorporated in 1881.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT
■ Three Canadian cities have rapid transit systems, four have light rail systems,
and three have commuter rail systems.
■ Rapid rail systems
■ There are three rapid transit systems operating in Canada: the Montreal
Metro, the Toronto Subway and the Vancouver SkyTrain.
■ Light rail systems
■ Three cities have light rail systems—the Calgary CTrain, the Edmonton Light
Rail Transit and the O-Train in Ottawa—and Toronto has an extensive streetcar
system.
How will you travel in Canada?
■ AIR

■ fly to the nearest main airport.
■ rent a car or take a train or bus to your final stop.
To fly in Canada, you need:
■ A piece of photo identification issued by the federal, provincial or territorial
government in Canada, or

are many benefits if you choose the bus, including:

■ most buses have air conditioning and a washroom on board

its partners. You can find out more and buy bus tickets by calling or visiting
your local bus station.
In most cities, you can buy tickets
at:
■ convenience stores.
■ major transit stations.
■ from the bus driver (you’ll need to give the exact amount).
Ferry
■ In coastal areas of Canada such as British Columbia and the Atlantic region,
ferry boats are a common way to travel. Many ferries transport both
passengers and vehicles.

routes in your area.
