It's a subway, eh?

Hey Hoser! Canada has a great variety of fixed guideway transit. From streetcars and automated light rail in Toronto, rubber-tired heavy rail in Montreal, diesel light rail in Ottawa, and an automated mini-subway in Vancouver, the GWN will keep the most demanding transit fans entertained.

For all those who are interested in what used to be, check out the
All Time List of Canadian Transport Systems.

Proposals, but not plans, for light rail have been made for
Halifax, Quebec City and Winnipeg, while heritage streetcars have been proposed for Kelowna and Burnaby. A monorail system has been proposed for Grand River, Ontario. A 23 mile subway was once authorized for Winnipeg. Had it actually taken place, perhaps the city would not be quietly referred to by Canadians as the asshole of Canada. For more on Winnipeg's subway that never was, see our Winnipeg page, coincidentally having the same name as the city, Winnipeg Needs A Subway. And we couldn't bloody agree more!.

Regina, Saskatchewan mentions an
Albert Street subway, but it's probably a pedestrian subway. Other links mention a 23rd street subway and the 19th street subway. In Calgary there is an 8th, 4th and 5th street subway. These are  pedestrian passages under major rail lines.

Also deserving honorable mention is the
Dawson City subway, which closed down a few years ago.
