Ontario Northland Modifies Schedule Between Cochrane and Moosonee

Effective June 30th, 2019 the schedule for the Polar Bear Express passenger train, which connects Cochrane and Moosonee, will be modified.

 

This new summer schedule will provide five day/week service (excluding Wednesdays and Saturdays) and is expected to reduce operating costs, increase ridership per train and make the service more sustainable.
 

We will continue to work closely with passengers, shipping customers and community leaders to ensure Ontario Northland is meeting the transportation needs of the region with the resources available.
