California Zephyr

What's the best way to get from San Francisco to Montreal by train?

Is there a direct train?

It's impossible to complete this trip in one go, with no stopovers, but here are a few options.

Here's what you do:

1- Depart Emeryville Amtrak station on train #6,
the California Zephyr, at 9:10AM, arriving Chicago Union Station at 3:50PM, two days later.

After, there are different options:

2a- Depart Chicago Union Station at 9:00PM aboard Amtrak train #48, the Lake Shore Limited, arriving Schenectady, NY at 1:46PM the next day.

3a- Stay overnight in Schenectady, and depart at 11:35AM aboard train #69, and Adirondack, arriving Montreal Central Station at 7:10PM.

alternative: If you'd prefer to stay overnight in NYC, this is possible, but it would cost more. Arrive NYC 7:25PM, and depart in the morning at 8:20AM

To avoid a stopover, use this route

2b- Depart Chicago Union Station at 9:00PM aboard Amtrak train #48, the Lake Shore Limited, and arrive Buffalo-Depew 8:30AM, the next day.

3b- Depart Buffalo at 10:15AM aboard GREYHOUND BUS #5578, arriving Niagara Falls, Ontario 11:40AM.

4b- Depart Niagara Falls at 2:15PM aboard VIA Rail train #92, arriving Toronto Union Station at 4:04PM.

5b- Depart Toronto Union Station at 5:00PM aboard train #66, arriving Montreal Central Station 9:33PM.
If you miss this connection, take the next train, #68 departing Toronto 6:35PM, arriving Montreal 11:58PM.

For travelling more on the Canadian side, use this itinerary:

1- Depart Emeryville at 10:12PM aboard Amtrak train #14, the Coast Starlight, arriving Seattle, WA, 8:45PM the next day.

2- Stay the night in Seattle, and depart the next morning aboard Amtrak train #510, Cascades, at 7:40AM, arriving Vancouver, BC at 11:35AM.

3- Depart Vacouver 8:30PM aboard VIA Rail train #2, the Canadian, arriving Toronto 9:30AM, 4 days later

4- Depart Toronto at 11:35AM aboard VIA Rail train #60, arriving Montreal at 5:04PM. Feel free to take a later train if you want to do some sightseeing in Toronto.

On the Vancouver-Toronto portion of this trip, trains only run 3 times a week.

For any trip, book well ahead of time to take advantage of special rates.
There are significant discounts available for Students, Seniors, Veterans, ISIC cardholders, and AAA members.
