VIA Rail Canada offers trans-continental connection with Western Canadian cities, and some U.S. destinations. The Ocean links Montreal and Halifax by night. You'll travel hundreds of kilometres while you sleep in comfort. When you wake up, you are in Atlantic Canada! The Ocean leaves Montreal in the evening, and travels along the south shore of the St. Lawrence River through the Matapedia valley. Continuing southwards across New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, the train reaches Halifax in mid-afternoon. In the other direction, the Ocean leaves Halifax in the late morning, and arrives in Montreal the next morning. The Ocean runs three days a week.
