Traveling Around in Canada
The fastest way to travel large distances in Canada is to fly. The main national carrier, Air Canada, has the largest network of routes. For cheap flights between major cities, consider WestJet (www.westjet.ca).
If is possible to travel between major cities by bus, particularly in the Windsor-Quebec City corridor, which includes major cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. Bus routes through the central heartland, such as through the prairies, can take several days, so unless you can bear the rare stops, it is really endurance travel for the hardy.
