PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION  IN ONTARIO

 

 Guide for Skilled Workers - Immigration, Settlement, Integration & Job Search Process. Immigrants & Newcomers

 

Most cities and towns in Ontario have a bus or train station. People working at the station can give you information about:

  • Where the bus or train goes
  • What days and times it travels
  • What it cost

 

If you need to take a flight between cities, ask a travel agent for information. You can find the names of travel agencies in the telephone book. Sometimes, taking a bus is the only way to travel to (and from) smaller towns and cities, other than driving. To find local information on bus lines and the nearest bus station, look in the Yellow Pages Directory under "Bus Lines." Greyhound is Canada's largest bus company.

 

Buses, trains and airlines link most cities in Ontario. A travel agent can provide free expert trip planning services on most forms of transportation. Some travel agencies, however, specialize in travel to specific areas of the world. To find a nearby travel agent, check the local Yellow Pages Directory under “Travel Agencies”. To rent a car or truck, check the local Yellow Pages under “Automobile Renting”.

FROM OUR EXPERIENCE

 

If you are renting a cheap used car make the following test: Turn on the car and make a normal route using all the transmission points, to evaluate aligning, direction, brake and eventual noises, especially in the tires axes. At the end of this route and in a fresh place with no contamination, with the engine still running, close all the windows and verify during some minutes that there is no smoke or burnt oil odour. Test the fan in all positions, but always with doors and windows closed. If you smell smoke or burn oil odour inside the car DO NOT ACCEPT this car.

 

When you drive a car in this condition, you are exposed to a high risk and your health is in danger. If you breathe these smokes and gases constantly during a long period they may cause severe problems to your lungs like emphysema or even cancer. (An average Canadian driver stays 300 hours per year in his vehicle) Keep in mind that during the winter season, with temperatures below 0 C, usually you cannot lower the window glasses of your car, and there is no air an oxygen change within the car.

 

This problem is common in cars that, even with low kilometres, were exposed to bad driving, long continuous journeys or used in very congested cities, with long periods of over warming of the engine.
