A Via Rail train car filled with everyone from Pythonistas to PyCon first timers, enjoying food, drinks, and maybe a few talks to get us ready for PyCon.

Whether you are flying to Canada or taking the train from the US or Ontario, plan to join us in Toronto for the trip from Union Station to Montreal. When we arrive we will be a mere 5 minute walk from Palais des congrès de Montréal.

Sign up for the inside scoop on the trip.

We will never give your email to a 3rd party.

Leaving Toronto Via Rail terminal in Union Station at 11am on Thursday, April 10, 2014.

Arrive about 6 hours later at 5pm in Montreal at Gare centrale de Montréal.

Our train is travelling from Toronto to Montreal. We do, however, have people coming into Toronto from various cities the night prior. We even have some folks coming from Montreal, just to take the train back to Montreal with us! There's enough people at this point that it's likely there will be a dinner organized in Toronto the evening before for people taking our train.

We already have several people taking the train with us who do not have tickets to PyCon 2014. While the point is certainly to attend the conference, our train trip is an experience all it's own. Join us on the train to Montreal and spend a night or two in a great city while taking in some of the parties and peripheral PyCon 2014 events. It's a great chance to meet and connect with a train full of awesome Python folks.
Cancellations must be submitted in writing and received by March 1, 2014 in order to receive a refund less a fee of $25.

Toronto's main airport, Pearson, is a fair distance from the train station. You will have to either take a cab, transit, or use a shuttle service like the one offered by Via Rail. It could take an hour or more depending which way you go.

There is a plan to connect Pearson and Union by rail, but it won't be operational until 2015.

Alternatively if you can fly into the Billy Bishop Airport on Toronto island, then Union Station is short shuttle ride away.
