"Rails" Union Station Tip by apbeaches

Union Station, Toronto: 10 reviews and 13 photos


We were told that we must see Union Station. It was centrally located. Union Station is the primary railway station and intercity transportation facility in Toronto, Ontario, Canada & it's the busiest in Canada. This is partly due to its position at the center of Canada's busiest inter-city rail service area, from Quebec City in the east to Windsor in the west. More than half of all Canadian passengers travel by way of Union Station.

Intercity train services are provided at Union Station by Via Rail and Amtrak, while commuter rail services are operated by GO Transit. The station is also connected to the Toronto Transit Commission subway and streetcar system via its namesake subway station. The Union Pearson Express train service to the airport operates from a separate UP Express Union Station located along the Sky-walk a short walk west of the main station building. Amtrack's Maple Leaf goes from NYC to Toronto and the Blue Water Route from Chicago to Union Station

Toronto's third and current Union Station was constructed from 1914-1920 and opened in 1927. Prince Edward, Prince of Wales and Ontario & Canadian dignitaries used gold scissors to cut the ribbon to this station.
