Trains & Buses Servicing North Bay


This is the schedule of buses and trains that regularly service North Bay.

Just a little over 20 years ago, there used to be 4 passenger trains running daily through North Bay but with continued government cutbacks, there are only 2 now. It seems that train travel is not being encouraged here in Canada nor in the USA meanwhile our friends in Europe are seeing the benefits and beauty of rail travel. It would be nice to see more trains travelling the rails and less truck traffic on the roads.

It is a shame that train travel is not being encouraged. It is cheaper and last longer and doesn't screw up the environment like everything else, except walking and riding a bike. We used to have trains that passed through our city but now that is a bike trail. I was born with a small railroad that passed in front of our house and that is gone too.

I did write about how people used to wear long underwear over winter or until we began to stink. You can find the link at the bottom of the post today.

Amen!

I live near Houston and we have a huge traffic problem. So the answer has become...build bigger roads...more lanes!

Yuck!
