ROAD
----
THE TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY CROSSES FROM ST.JOHNS,
NEWFOUNDLAND, TO VICTORIA B.C. FOR NEARLY 8000KM.
THE PRINCIPAL HIGHWAYS OF THE MODERN ROAD SYSTEM
IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF CANADA CONTRAST GREATLY TO
THE GRADED BUT OFTEN LOOSE SURFACE RURAL HIGHWAYS
AND SECONDARY ROADS OF THE NORTHERN AREA. THE RULE OF
THE ROAD IS TO DRIVE ON THE RIGHT. SPEED LIMITS ARE
POSTED IN KILOMETERS AND ARE USUALLY 100KPH ON MOTORWAYS,
80KPH ON RURAL HIGHWAYS, 50KPH IN CITIES. THE MAJORITY
OF HIRE-CARS USE UNLEADED PETROL AVAILABLE IN ALL CITIES
AND FROM AIRPORTS. IN ALL PROVINCES SEAT BELTS ARE
COMPULSORY, EXCEPT IN THE YUKON, SASKATCHEWAN AND
NORTHWEST TERRITORIES.

BUS
---
BUSES PROVIDE GOOD BUDGET TRANSPORTATION, AND ARE VERY
COMFORTABLE, WITH AIR-CONDITIONING AND ONBOARD TOILETS.
LEG AND HEADROOM ARE COMPARABLE TO AIRLINES OR TRAINS AND
BUSES HAVE THE ADDED ADVANTAGE OF DROPPING YOU OFF DOWNTOWN.
GREYHOUND OPERATES SERVICES FROM TORONTO TO THE WEST.
REGIONAL CARRIERS OPERATE IN EASTERN CANADA.
THE SUBWAY, BUS, TRAM AND TROLLEYS ARE ALL AVAILABLE IN THE
BIGGER CITIES AND ARE A FAST, QUITE AND INEXPENSIVE WAY TO
TRAVEL.

RAIL
----
IT TAKES APPROXIMATELY FOUR DAYS TO CROSS THE COUNTRY BY
TRAIN. YOU MAY ALSO TAKE A TRIP TO THE ARCTIC ON THE POLAR
BEAR EXPRESS. YOU NEED TO BOOK WELL IN ADVANCE. VIA RAIL IS
CANADA'S NATIONAL RAIL NETWORK. OTHER COMPANIES SUCH AS
ONTARIO NORTHLAND, ALGOMA CENTRAL AND BRITISH COLUMBIA
RAILWAYS OPERATE REGIONAL SERVICES.


AIR
---
DUE TO THE SIZE OF THE COUNTRY, THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE
NETWORK LINKING GATEWAYS TO THE REMOTEST CORNERS. MANY
CANADIAN AND U.S. AIRLINES OFFER TRANSBORDER SERVICES.
THERE ARE SEVERAL LIGHT PLANES THAT ENTER AREAS
INACCESSIBLE BY ROAD OR TRAIN. SEAPLANES ALSO TRANSPORT
PEOPLE FROM COASTAL AREAS TO OFF-SHORE ISLANDS.

SEA
---
THERE IS A FREQUENT DAILY FERRY SERVICE FROM VANCOUVER TO
VICTORIA AND THE GULF ISLANDS, WITH THE JOURNEY LASTING
APPROXIMATELY 2.5HOURS. THE SERVICE BETWEEN PORT HARDY AND
PRINCE RUPERT IS OPERATED ON ALTERNATE DAYS IN EACH
DIRECTION WITH THE JOURNEY BEING ABOUT 15HOURS LONG.
TOLL FREE FERRIES ARE PART OF THE HIGHWAY SYSTEM AND ARE
LOCATED MAINLY ALONG THE SAINT JOHN RIVER AND KENNEBECASIS
RIVER. OTHER TOLL FREE FERRIES OPERATE BETWEEN DEER ISLAND
AND LETETE.
