In partnership with the Ontario and Quebec Ministries of Tourism and Alternative Transportation Options, VIA's Montreal-Toronto Bike Train combines two green modes of transportation – cycling and train travel – a natural choice for enjoying the country.

Building on the success of the Toronto-Niagara Bike Train, the Montreal-Toronto Bike Train will enable passengers to travel in comfort between Montreal and Toronto with their bikes safely secured on board. The installation of bike racks in the baggage car eliminates the need to box bikes for transport. Each baggage car accommodates up to 6 bicycles per trip. From cycling through Toronto's many multicultural neighbourhoods to linking up with Quebec's famous Route verte, this environmentally friendly initiative will have you seeing more greenery than you can imagine.
