*'''The Canadian'''—Trains on this line run the transcontinental route from Toronto to [[Vancouver]] three times a week each way, stopping at a large number of smaller stations on the way. Cities that this train passes through include: [[Winnipeg]], [[Saskatoon]], [[Edmonton]], [[Jasper]] and [[Kamloops]]. The full journey takes about three days. This is one of the most expensive rail journeys in North America and is many times more expensive than flying. However, [[Via rail]] runs 'express deals' 2-3 weeks before travel that can reduce the price on this route by 75 percent. The trains contain both sleeper berths and cabins, as well as reclining economy seating. Three meals per day are cooked in the train's dining car.  These are included in sleeper fares and are available for purchase for economy passengers.

*'''Ontario Northland (discontinued as of Sept 2012)'''—[http://www.ontarionorthland.ca/en/railpassenger/northlander/northlander.html]. A Government subsidized passenger rail service into the scarcely populated north of Ontario. They run trains on a single line from Toronto to [[Cochrane]], Ontario six times a week. Most of this line is single track and owned by freight companies, as a result, whenever a freight train passes, the passenger train must move onto a siding and wait for the other train to pass, therefore Ontario Northland trains are generally 1.5-2.5 hours behind schedule at either end of their route.
  
 
*'''Commuter train'''—Services in the [[Greater Toronto Area]] are operated exclusively by '''GO Transit''' [http://www.gotransit.com/], who run all of their trains from Union Station. Their trains serve mainly the sprawling suburbs around the city and most of the train lines run only during rush hour; at other times of the day, they are replaced by bus services. Most of these buses originate from Union Station Bus Terminal across Bay Street from the railway station; there is an overhead walkway from the GO Train concourse to the bus terminal.
